Mir Quasem's review turned down

30 August 2016,Tuesday, 10:43



The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday upheld the death penalty for Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami central leader Mir Quasem Ali in war crime case.

The apex court rejected a petition filed by him for seeking a review of its earlier verdict that upheld his death sentence.

A five-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha issued the order.

On June 19, Barrister Mir Ahmed Bin Quasem, son of Mir Quasem, filed the 68-page review petition with the Appellate Division against the death penalty handed down to him for his crimes against humanity during the Liberation War in 1971.
