SC to set date for hearing on Mir Quasem's appeal

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday set Wednesday to fix date to start hearing the appeal filed by Jamaat central executive council member Mir Quasem Ali.

The Jamaat leader challenged his death sentence for committing crimes against humanity.

A four-member Appellate Division panel headed by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha set the date on Tuesday morning.

The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT)-2 on November 2, 2014, sentenced Ali to death as it found him guilty of 10 charges out of the total 14.

Ali, infamously known as 'Bangali Khan' during 1971, lodged appeal with the Supreme Court on November 30, 2014. His advocate-on-record Joynul Abedin Tuhin sought acquittal of Ali from the charges, citing 181 grounds, according to UNB. - Idrak
