Verdict acceptable: Hanif
The Supreme Court’s final verdict awarding death penalty to Muhammad Kamaruzzaman met the people’s expectation, Awami League’s Joint Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif said today.
“The Supreme Court upheld the death verdict of Kamaruzzaman. Awami League is happy, the people of the country is happy with the verdict,” he told reporters at his Karwan Bazar residence after the verdict was delivered this morning.
“The tribunal worked independently. This verdict is acceptable. Now we all will wait for quick execution of the verdict,” he said.
Earlier this morning, the apex court upheld the death penalty to war criminal and Jamaat-e-Islami leader Kamaruzzaman for one charge and commuted his death to life imprisonment in another.
