ICT asks home boss to explain remarks

Times National Desk - February 4th, 2013

International Crimes Tribunal-2 on Sunday asked Home Minister MK Alamgir to explain within 10 days his comments over the dates of verdicts of war crimes accused.
The three-member tribunal came up with the order following a verbal request of Tajul Islam, a defence counsel. Quoting three newspaper reports, Tajul told the court that the home minister at a programme during his recent Egypt visit said the second verdict of war crimes would be announced in the first week of February while the third one on February 14.
He also told the court that the daily Amar Desh published the report on February 3 while daily Sangram and Naya Diganta published the item on Saturday.
The court should take action against the minister as his comments were considered as derogatory one, the defence counsel urged the court.
The court later fixed February 14 for further order on the issue.
