SC defers Nizami’s review petition hearing for a week


Dhaka –The Supreme Court (SC) on Sunday deferred the hearing for a week on the review petition of condemned war criminal Jamaat Ameer Motiur Rahman Nizami against its verdict upholding the International Crimes Tribunal’s judgment that had sentenced him to death.
A three-member bench of the Appellate Division, led by Chief Justice SK Sinha, passed the order when Nizami’s lawyer SM Shahjahan submitted a petition seeking six weeks time.
The hearing will be held in the next week, the court said in its order.
Nizami’s counsels on Sunday filed the petition seeking six weeks’ time for hearing on the review plea.
Attorney General Mahbubey Alam represented the state while Barrister Khandker Mahbub Hossain and Barrister Najib Momen moved for Nizami.
The matter was included in the Supreme Court’s cause list for Sunday.
Earlier on March 30, the prosecution filed an appeal with the Appellate Division for a quick hearing on the review petition of Nizami.
