BNP terms war crimes trial 'farcical'
BNP will not accept this 'farcical trial' of war crimes designed to suppress the opponent by protecting war criminals belonging to the ruling party, said its standing committee member MK Anwar yesterday.
“The government is conspiring to eliminate the opposition in the name of trial of crimes against humanity. Fair trial is not possible under the present law,” he said at a roundtable discussion at Dhaka Reporters' Unity organised by Sushil Forum, a pro-BNP body.
The BNP leader claimed his party is not against the trial of war criminals but said no farcical trial will be allowed to take place.
“The US Ambassador-at-Large Stephen Rapp made six recommendations and we support him,” he added.
