‘Set aside’ war criminal Quasem’s death penalty: HRW

Human Rights Watch today urged Bangladesh authorities to “set aside” war criminal Mir Quasem Ali’s death penalty citing reasons that the trial was “flawed”.

“Bangladeshi authorities should immediately set aside the death penalty against Mir Qasem Ali, a senior member of the executive committee of opposition party Jamaat-e-Islami, and order a new trial that meets international fair trial standards,” it said.

The rights group cited recent comments of Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha to draw conclusion that the trial process of Quasem “did not meet fair trial standards”.
