Keep 4 Jamaat [-e-Islami] leaders detained till July 12: Tribunal

The International Crimes Tribunal on Wednesday directed the authorities concerned to keep four top Jamaat-e-Islami leaders, including its Ameer Motiur Rahman Nizami, detained until July 12 in connection with crimes against humanity in 1971.

The three other leaders are: Secretary General Ali Ahsan Muhammad Mojahid and assistant secretaries general Muhammad Kamaruzzaman and Abdul Quader Molla.

The three-member tribunal headed by Justice Nizamul Haque ordered the prosecutors to submit the final report on investigation into the allegations against them by July 12.

The court also said the prosecutors will have to submit the progress report of investigation if they failed to place the final report to it on time.

The tribunal passed the orders upon a petition filed by the prosecution for keeping the four Jamaat leaders detained until completion of investigation into the war crimes charges against them. The prosecution filed the petition in April.

The four leaders were produced before the tribunal in the morning.
