Ex-BNP MP gets death for war crimes

The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT)-1 on Wednesday sentenced former BNP lawmaker of Bogura-3 constituency Abdul Momin Talukder Khoka to death for his crimes against humanity committed during the War of Liberation.

A three-member ICT-1 panel headed by Justice Md Shahinur Islam passed the order after holding the trial in his absentia, reports BSS.

The tribunal on October 31 kept the judgement on CAV, curia advisory vault (a Latin legal term, meaning court awaits judgement) as both the prosecution and defence concluded their arguments in the case on that day.

On November 22, the tribunal through a short order had set today to pronounce the judgement.
