Protectors won’t be spared: PM

Times National Desk - February 21st, 2013

The BNP and others, who want to protect war criminals and Jamaat-e-Islami that opposed Bangladesh’s birth, would also be brought to book, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said yesterday.
Saying the trial of crimes against humanity committed during the 1971 Liberation War would be done on this soil, she sought cooperation from people of all walks of life in accomplishing the task as pledged by the ruling Awami League before the last parliamentary elections.
Nine people, including six from Jamaat, have so far been brought under trial inĀ  connection with war crimes. Of the nine, two have already been convicted by a war crimes tribunal.
“InshAllah, we will get verdicts of the trial [of the remaining war crimes cases] and be able to execute those,” she said, addressing a discussion at Osmani Memorial Auditorium in the capital.
The Awami League organised it to mark the International Mother Language Day today with its Presidium Member Syeda Sajeda Chowdhury in the chair.
