ICT: Delwar Hossain Sayedee Sentenced to Death


Delwar Hossain Sayedee

On Thursday, 28 February 2013 Delwar Hossain Sayedee was sentenced to death by the International Crimes Tribunal (“ICT) in Bangladesh. Sayedee was convicted on “eight counts of 20 involving mass killings, rape and atrocities during the nine-month war against Pakistan”.

While the prosecutor Syed Haider Ali stated that “Justice has been done to those who lost their loved ones at the hands of Sayedee”, Sayedee’s defence lawyers “boycotted the tribunal during the verdict and rejected it as politically motivated.”
