Prosecutor of the International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) Mohammad Ali was suspended on Thursday for his “professional misconduct and breaching discipline”.
The action was taken against Ali following a letter sent to the law ministry by the ICT chief prosecutor Ghulam Arief Tipoo, said law minister Anisul Huq.
He also said they were investigating the allegations brought against the ICT prosecutor. “Further action will be taken following the investigation.”
Earlier on 14 February, Tipoo sent a letter to the law ministry requesting it to take action against prosecutor Mohammad Ali who was withdrawn “in the public interest” from all cases involving the tribunal.
On 4 February, Mohammad Ali was withdrawn from all cases involving the tribunal.
Tribunal sources said Ali was withdrawn for helping an MP, who is now in jail for his alleged involvement in crimes against humanity during the liberation war, get bail. – UNB
