International Crimes Tribunal-2 allowed six defence witnesses from a list of 965 witnesses to be testified for Jamaat-e-Islami leader Abdul Quader Mollah, who is an accused of crimes against humanity, on Monday.
The two-member tribunal headed by ATM Fazle Kabir directed the defence counsel to produce one among the six witnesses on November 11 to give their testimony for the Jamaat leader.
