Jamaat to protest ruling on Sayedee’s case
Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami has called for nationwide protests on Tuesday in objection to Delawar Hossain Sayedee’s lifetime imprisonment sentence for crimes against humanity during the 1971 Liberation War. The organisation’s ameer Maqbul Ahmad announced it would hold the peaceful protests through a press statement released on Monday. Earlier, on the day, a five-member bench of Appellate Division led by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha upheld its previous order that commuted Sayedee’s death sentence to lifetime imprisonment. This is the first case of a war crimes trial in which the state has sought review to maintain the tribunal’s verdict. Sayedee is the Nayeb-e-Ameer of Jamaat, an Islamist party that sided with the Pakistan Army during the 1971 Liberation War and committed war crimes. He was arrested from his home in Dhaka on June 29, 2010 in a case filed for hurting religious sentiments.
