The prosecution of the International Crimes Tribunal has expressed dissatisfaction after failing to get death penalty for Ghulam Azam — despite all the charges against him being proven.
The prosecution said the decision to appeal the verdict will be taken once a copy of it is received.
After the International Crimes Tribunal-1 announced the verdict,the prosecution’s coordinator MK Rahman said Ghulam Azam has been sentenced to 90 years in prison.
“The five charges against him have been proven beyond doubt. He will remain in jail until he dies.”
The lawyer said the prosecution is not pleased.
“We are not happy. The tribunal said he deserved maximum penalty. But he was sentenced to 90 years in prison because of his age and health condition. We will decide on an appeal once we get the full copy of the verdict.”
“Only incomplete justice has been achieved after a 40-year long wait,” said the prosecution’s coordinator.
Prosecutor Zead-Al-Malum said, “the people of the country wanted maximum penalty for the leader of the razakars. The judge will have to agree that he did deserve it. We are united with the people’s sentiment and will appeal against the verdict.
