He said that the fugitive convicts will be repatriated

Providing his reaction to the much anticipated verdict of the August 21 Grenade attack case, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said he believes that justice has been served.

He added: “The verdict has proved that those involved in criminal activities, will never be able to evade punishment.

He was speaking to the reporters in front of the secretariat on Wednesday.

“As we saw [from the verdict], some police officials and high-ups from different government agencies were also found guilty—which clearly means that they were convicted for negligence of duty. The patrons of the attackers also received punishment, he said.” 

The fugitive convicts, who are presently abroad, will be brought back home, the minister said, adding: “We will make a serious effort to expedite the repatriation process of absconding convicts, as the verdict has already been delivered against them.”

Kamal told the reporters that the investigating officers of the case also found evidence of the grenade attack being planned in Hawa Bhaban [ the BNP chief's the then political office in Dhaka].

“The prosecution has the option to move the High Court, on which I will not make any comments,” he said.

According to the minister, there were a number of efforts to halt the trial process, including the Judge Miah “drama” and implication  of Awami League leaders in several lawsuits. 

“Those who were behind the attack tried to cover up their crimes. Saber Hossain Chowdhury was prevented from filing a case regarding the grenade attack,” Kamal further said, adding that even the condemnation by Awami League representatives in the then-parliament was silenced.
