Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN) – A tribunal in Dhaka, which is holding trial of Jamaat-e-Islami Secretary General Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mojaheed for wartime offences, will deliver its verdict on Wednesday.

“Prosecution and defence, we will deliver the verdict in Jamaat leader Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mojaheed case tomorrow,” Justice Obaidul Hassan, chairman of International Crimes Tribunal-2, announced, the Daily Star, a local newspaper, reported.

The announcement came before the court began the day’s proceeding in the war crimes case of Chowdhury Mueen Uddin and Ashrafuzzaman Khan.

Allegedly the chief of infamous Al-Badr force, the top Jamaat leader is facing seven charges which include murder, genocide and conspiracy to kill the intellectuals during the country’s Liberation War in 1971.

Earlier on June 5, the tribunal kept the Mojaheed case CAV (Curia Advisari Vult, a Latin legal term meaning verdict would be delivered anytime).
