The International Crimes Tribunal-1 on Sunday set December 18 to order on indictment of detained central executive committee member of Jamaat-e-Islami Maulana Abdus Subhan.
The tribunal led by Justice ATM Fazle Kabir set the date after hearing from both the prosecution and the defence on charge framing.
Prosecutor Sultan Mahmud Simon pleaded to indict Maulana Abdus Subhan on nine counts of crimes against humanity committed during the liberation war.
The charges include genocide, murders, abduction, torture, confinement and other crimes against humanity.
Placing his submission, chief defence counsel Abdur Razzaq pleaded to discharge his client from all the charges.
He said that his client could not be charged for torture and it was not recognized as a crime in the customary international law during the liberation war.
Beside he raised question about 42 years of delay for prosecuting the accused.
Maulana Abdus Subhan was a central leader and Pabna district amir of Jamaat-e-Islami in 1971.
