Next hearing on review plea over war criminal Sayedee’s sentence Monday

 

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court has adjourned until Monday the hearing on a much-awaited review petition filed seeking death sentence for Delawar Hossain Sayedee, a notorious war criminal from Pirojpur in 1971.

 

A five-member bench led by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha passed the order after a hearing. On April 6, the apex court set Sunday for the hearing.

 

His death sentence, given by the International Crimes Tribunal on February 28, 2013, was commuted to imprisonment until death on September 17, 2014 by the Supreme Court.
