Death sentence of Jamaat leader Mir Kashem Ali for crimes against humanity has been upheld. The five-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Surendra Kumer Sinha has rejected the petition filed by Jamaat leader Mir Kashem Ali seeking reconsideration of the final verdict of his death penalty today. Attorney General Mahbubey Alam has said the judgement can be executed anytime if the president does not grant his clemency appeal or Mir Kashem does not seek mercy. He expressed the hope that the full judgement would be published very soon. The International Crimes Tribunal pronounced death sentence against Mir Kashem on the 2nd of November, 2014 for crimes against humanity in 1971. One of the top leaders of Badar bahini Mir Kashem appealed for reconsideration of the judgement on the 19th of June after release of the full verdict of appeal on the 6th of June last.

Law Minister Anisul Haque has said Mir Kashem Ali may submit mercy petition to the President even though he is now staying out of the country. Talking to newsmen at the secretariat he said however the verdict could be executed at the earliest if he does not seek clemency.

People from all walks of life including freedom fighters have expressed satisfaction at the upholding of Jamaat leader Mir Kashem Ali’s death verdict. According to them the judgement would remain as a precedent. Meanwhile, Ganajagaran Mancha has demanded to start trial of other war criminals along side quick execution of Mir Kashem’s death sentence. They brought out jubilation procession at Shahbagh in the capital after pronouncement of the verdict. People from various classes and profession burst into joy at the court premises after the review petition of Mir Kashem Ali against his death penalty was rejected in the Appellate Division.

Pro-liberation people of Chittagong have demanded not only quick execution of death sentence but to confiscate the assets of Mir Kashem who was one of the main financiers of Jamaat. The freedom fighters and leaders and workers of Ganajagaran Mancha brought out jubilation procession in the port city as soon as review petition was rejected. They said a leader of Islami Chhatra Shanga and the third top leader of Al Badar Mir Kashem Ali carried out inhuman repression on many freedom fighters and pro-liberation people at his torture cell at Dalim Hotel at Andar Killa in Chittagong.

Awami League Joint General Secretary Mahabub-ul-Alam Hanif has said today’s judgement has fulfilled the aspiration of the nation. In an instant reaction at his business office after pronouncement of the verdict Hanif said the trial process of the war criminals would continue.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said aim of the government is to build a hunger-free prosperous Sonar Bangla as dreamt by Bangabandhu. She was speaking at a memorial meeting marking the National Mourning Day at Krishibid Institution in the capital. It has jointly been organised by Dhaka North and South City Awami League.
