Bangladesh Jamaat leader’s death sentence review plea rejected
cancel

Dhaka: A Bangladesh court rejected on Monday Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) leader Mohammad Kamaruzzaman's petition to review his death sentence.

A four-member bench headed by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha, rejected the petition after about a two-hour long hearing on Sunday, bdnews24 reported.

On November 3, 2014, the same bench had upheld the war crimes tribunal's death sentence for Kamaruzzaman.

Former Al-Badr leader Mohammad Kamaruzzaman was sentenced to death in 2013 for committing atrocities on Bengalis during the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War.

The war crimes tribunal issued a death warrant for him after the Appellate Division published the full verdict, upholding the death penalty.

However, the execution was not carried out after the convict appealed on March 5 for a review.

Kamaruzzaman, can now file a mercy petition with President Abdul Hamid as his last resort to save himself from being executed.
