Tuesday, 20 May 2014
Death sentenced awarded Jamaat-e-Islami Assistant Secretary General Mohammad Kamaruzzaman’s appeal hearing has been deferred till June 3. A four-member bench of the Appellate Divison headed by Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha passed the order in response to a plea moved by the defence lawyers.
Kamruzzaman’s chief defence counsel Khandker Mahbub Hossain pled for a five-week time extension Tuesday morning when the court convened for the appeal hearing.
International Crimes Tribunal 2 awarded death penalty to Kamaruzzaman on May 9 last year for committing crimes against humanity during Liberation War.
