Family members meet Kamaruzzaman
Members of Kamaruzzaman’s family, including his wife Nurunnahar, met him at the Dhaka Central Jail on Saturday morning. Mohammad Shishir Manir, counsel for the death-row war criminal, said the family members went to see Kamaruzzaman as part of regular visit.
“We’ll appeal to the higher court and hope to get justice,” the counsel added.
The International Crimes Tribunal-2 issued a death warrant for Kamaruzzaman on February 19 after receiving the full text of the Supreme Court verdict that upheld his death penalty for his crimes against humanity during 1971 Liberation War.
On the same day, the prison authorities read out the death warrant to Kamaruzzaman.
The Jamaat-e-Islami Assistant Secretary General M Kamaruzzaman, was condemned to death by the tribunal on May 9, 2013 for his crimes against humanity, including murder, abduction, torture, rape and mass killing during the Liberation War.
The Supreme Court upheld this verdict on November 3 last year.
