Bangladesh SC upholds Jama’at leader’s death penalty
cancel

Dhaka: The Supreme Court of Bangladesh on Tuesday upheld the death penalty for Jama’at-e-Islami leader Mir Quasem Ali for war crimes.

A five-member Appellate Division bench headed by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha gave the verdict rejecting Quasem's appeal to review his death penalty, reported the Dhaka Tribune.

On November 2, 2014, International Crimes Tribunal-2 awarded capital punishment to then 63-year-old Jamaat leader over criminal charges committed by him during the 1971 Liberation War, reported the Daily Star.

The Appellate Division upheld the verdict on March 8.

On June 19, Quasem submitted his petition seeking a review of death penalty.

The Al-Badr militia commander of 1971 can now seek President's mercy by repenting for his crimes, reported bdnews24.com.

Quasem's family has branded the judgement a "judicial killing".
