Bangladesh's Ganajagaran Mancha hails death sentence of war criminal

Dhaka, Sep 21 (ANI): Bangladesh's Ganajagaran Mancha has hailed the verdict of the Supreme Court sentencing a Jamaat leader Abdul Quader Mollah to death for war crimes, overturning a life sentence imposed by a tribunal. Bangladesh Journalist, Shahriar Kabir, said that the verdict was the victory of the victims of the war. The war crimes tribunal back in February found Mollah, assistant secretary general of the outlawed Jamaat-e-Islami party, guilty of murder, rape and torture during the 1971 war of independence from Pakistan. The life sentence imposed at the time triggered protests by people hoping he would get the death penalty. In response, parliament amended a law to allow the state to appeal against any verdict or sentence passed by the tribunal. Sep 21, 2013
