The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT)-1 Wednesday adjourned the hearing in the trial of Matiur Rahman Nizami, charged with committing crimes against humanity during the liberation war, until February 3, reports BSS.
The three-member panel of ICT-1, headed by Justice ATM Fazle Kabir fixed the date accepting a plea of the prosecution.
Wednesday was fixed for further cross-examination of the second prosecution witness (PM) against the incumbent Jama’at chief. But as the tribunal wanted to continue with defence’s arguments in the trial of another war crimes suspect Delwar Hossain Sayedee, there was no time for the proceedings of Nizami’s trial.
So Advocate Mir Iqbal Hossain, prosecutor of this trial, sought adjournment.
Earlier on May 28, last year, the Jama’at chief was indicted on 16 counts of crimes against humanity including murder, rape, arson and inciting violence.
Meanwhile, the same tribunal also adjourned the hearing in the trial of another war crimes suspect Salauddin Quader Chowdhury until January 28.
