War Crimes

'Plot in army is to foil trial'

The communal and anti-liberation force hatched the recent plot in army to topple the government for foiling war crimes trial and hindering the country's democratic progress, said Hasanul Haq Inu yesterday.
"There is no way to stop war crimes trial legally. That is why the evil force is hatching conspiracy to assume power illegally by using armed forces to protect the war criminals," said Inu, the president of Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD).
Inu was presiding over a roundtable styled 'Politics of unconstitutional and undemocratic conspiracy to topple elected government: Role of democratic forces' organised by JSD, a partner of ruling Awami League-led grand alliance, at Jatiya Press Club.
The unity of the grand alliance would be stronger, if Awami League does not maintain "go alone" policy. So, Awami League should give up the "go alone" policy to form a greater and stronger unity of progressive forces, he said.
About the role of army, he said, "The army is now very much respectful to rule of law. If the situation continues, the future of democracy and rule of law will be bright in the country."
JSD General Secretary Sharif Nurul Ambia, JSD Executive President Moinuddin Khan Badal, Workers Party of Bangladesh politburo member Bimol Biswas, Jatiya Party (JP-Manju) Chairman and Ittefaq Editor Anwar Hossain Manju and former army officer Maj Gen (retd) Abdur Rashid also addressed the function.
