Lawyers of Mohammad Kamaruzzaman Jamaat-e-Islami leader and death-row war crimes convict met him at the Dhaka Central Jail on Saturday.
His counsels Shishir Monir, Ehsar A Siddique, Mashiul Alam, Matiur Rahman Akhand and Maujahidul Islam Shahin entered the jail at around 11am.“We have discussed legal matters with him. He told us that he was physically fit and doing well mentally,” Shishir Monir told reporters at the prison gate after the meeting lasting for half an hour.
“He hoped that the Appellate Division will thoroughly hear his review petition and rule in his favour and give him justice.”
Kamaruzzaman’s petition to review the death sentence is expected to be heard by the top appeals court on Sunday.
Asked whether he would seek presidential clemency if the death sentence is upheld, Monir said: “He had made it clear that the time to consider an appeal for presidential clemency is yet to come.
A verdict in the review is expected to be given tomorrow (Sunday), he will consult lawyers on his next steps after that,” he said. – News Desk
