A tribunal in Dhaka today issued arrest warrant against two Kishoreganj war crimes suspects for their involvement in crimes against humanity and genocide committed in the district during the Liberation War in 1971.
The suspects are Syed Mohammad Hossain, 64, and Mohammad Moslem Prodhan, 66. Hossain is the younger brother of convicted war criminal Syed Hasan Ali.
A three-member panel of International Crimes Tribunal-2 headed by its Chairman Justice Obaidul Hassan issued the warrant in response to a petition filed by the prosecution.
Moving the petition, Prosecutor Tureen Afroz said the suspects’ involvement with at least three incidents of crime has been found during the investigation that began on November 13 last year.
Now the accused need to be arrested for proper investigation as the witnesses and victims are reported to be threatened by the alleged razakars and their associates, Tureen added.
