The fugitive convicts will face judgment, says law minister
Law, Justice, and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq has said that the government's efforts are still on to bring back the remaining fugitive killers of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and to make them face justice.
"I want to tell this loud and clear, no matter how long it would take; we will bring the fugitive convicts back and execute the judgment against them. Our efforts are on to this end," he said on Friday while addressing virtually a discussion of Akhaura upazila Awami League marking the National Mourning Day.
Presided over by upazila Awami League Convenor Md Joynal Abedin, and conducted by Akhaura Mayor Md Takjil Khalifa, the discussion was also addressed, among others, by upazila parishad Chairman Md Abul Kashem Bhuiyan, Upazila Nirbahi Officer Rumana Akter, and Awami League leaders Golam Samdani Ferdous, Ataur Rahman Nazim, and Abdul Mumin Beigh.
Later, a special Munajat was offered for the martyrs of August 15.
The minister at the discussion advised the local leaders of Awami League not to distribute cooked food through Kangali Voj on August 15 this time, due to the growing number of coronavirus infections, but to give food assistance to the people who lost their jobs amid the pandemic, especially the tea-stall and saloon workers.
