A tribunal in Dhaka today asked the prison authorities to produce five war crime suspects from Patuakhali before it on October 1.
The International Crimes Tribunal-1 led by Justice Anwarul Haque passed the order following a prosecution petition to show them arrested in a war crime case.
The suspects are Esahaq Shikder, Abdul Goni Howlader, Md Awal alias Awal Moulovi, Abdus Sattar Pyada and Solayman Mridha.
Moving the petition, Prosecutor Tureen Afroz told the three-member panel that investigation against the five started on February 18 this year.
The investigation officer has already found evidences about their involvement in wartime offences including genocide and rape, she said.
The five have been in jail since September 7 in connection with a criminal case.
They need to be shown arrested in the war crime case because they might flee after securing bail in the criminal case, Tureen said.
