Alim verdict on today


The International Crimes Tribunal-2 (ICT-2) will announce the verdict on former BNP minister Abdul Alim on Wednesday.

ICT-2 headed by Justice Obaidul Hasan ended the trial on Sep 22 and rejected a plea for extending his bail for the first time in the more than two years since his arrest.

Alim, had been arrested from his Joypurhat residence on Mar 27, 2011. The ICT-1 had granted the 81-year-old leader conditional bail, extending it on several occasions.

In March this year, his case was shifted to ICT-2, which began hearing on Apr 24.

Abdul Alim was indicted for 17 war crime charges on Jun 11 last year.

The charges include the murder of Dr Abul Kashem and plotting to kill 26 freedom fighters.

He is also accused of being involved in the Koraikadipur genocide and 38 murders in Chokpara, Juripara, Palpara and Sonapara, mostly of Hindus.
