Fazle Kabir heads 2nd war tribunal

The government yesterday formed a second International Crimes Tribunal with Justice ATM Fazle Kabir as its chairman.

Kabir, a High Court judge, was member of the first tribunal formed on March 25, 2010.

Two other judges of the new tribunal are HC judge Obaidul Hasan and district judge M Shahinur Islam, also registrar of the first tribunal.

Justice Anwar-ul Haque, an HC judge, has replaced Justice Kabir as member of the first tribunal headed by Justice Md Nizamul Huq, another HC judge.

Law Secretary Ashish Ranjan Das yesterday issued a gazette notification on the appointments of tribunal judges.

The new tribunal will be called the International Crimes Tribunal-2 and the first one the International Crimes Tribunal-1.

The first tribunal is now dealing with eight cases of crimes against humanity committed during the 1971 Liberation War.

A law ministry high-up told The Daily Star that the second tribunal would deal with cases in which witnesses are yet to give their deposition before the first tribunal.

The first tribunal will be requested to bring some changes to its rules of procedure so that some cases can be transferred to the new tribunal, the official said.
