Verdict today in Nizami's case

The International Crimes Tribunal-1 would finally deliver the verdict in the war crimes case against Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer Motiur Rahman Nizami today after the 22-month-long trial proceedings.

Defence counsel Tajul Islam observed that the prosecution had failed to prove any of...

Prosecution vs prosecution

Prosecution vs prosecution

The chief prosecutor and the chief coordinator of the prosecution are apparently on the verge of a face-off, as both are determined to keep control over the 22-member team that has been dealing with war crimes cases. Chief Prosecutor Ghulam Arief Tipoo has termed the post, "chief coordinator", illegal while MK Rahman, who holds the post, said he has the sole authority to allocate or reallocate the duties of prosecutors. The issue has created an uncomfortable atmosphere in the team that...
