SC to start hearing Nizami appeal today

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court will begin hearing on an appeal filed by Jamaat leader Motiur Rahman Nizami, challenging the International Crimes Tribunal verdict that awarded him the death penalty for wartime offences.
The four-member bench of the Appellate Division, headed by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha, has listed the matter as item number 10 of today’s (Tuesday's) cause-list for hearing.
The three other judges of the bench are Justice Nazmun Ara Sultana, Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain and Justice Hasan Foez Siddique, according to the Supreme Court website.
On October 29 last year, the ICT-1 found 71-year-old Nizami guilty in eight of the 16 war crimes charges brought against him, and handed down the death penalty on four charges and lifetime imprisonment on the other four.  The ICT-1 acquitted Nizami of eight other charges, as the prosecution failed to prove them.
Nizami, who has also been sentenced to death in the sensational 10-truck arms haul case, filed an appeal before the Supreme Court on November 23 last year challenging the ICT-1 verdict. The appeal, containing 6,252 pages, cited 168 reasons for him to be discharged from the war crimes charges.
On January 30 this year, a Chittagong court also sentenced him to death in the 10-truck arms haul case. His appeal in the case is yet to be disposed of by the High Court.
Nizami, now 71, is detained in the Kashimpur high security jail in Gazipur.
The same bench of the apex court is likely to seek the concise statement or to fix a date of hearing on another appeal filed by another Jamaat leader, Mir Quasem Ali, against the tribunal verdict that awarded him the death penalty for wartime offences.
