13 October 2015, Nirapad News: Death row convict Jamaat-e-Islami secretary general Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mojaheed will appeal on Wednesday to review his final verdict.
The convict’s lawyers informed the media after meeting him in Dhaka Central Jail in city on Tuesday.
A team of five lawyers, led by Shishir Monir reached the jail gate around 3:00pm and later entered the prison.
The other lawyers included Masiul Alam, Ehsan Abdullah Siddique, Matiur Rahman Akand and Asad uddin.
After coming out from the jail, Shishir Monir told the media that they had talked to Mojaheed and decided to place a review plea to Appellate Division at 10:00am on Wednesday (October 14).
Earlier on June 16, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court, through a summary verdict, upheld the death sentence that the International Crimes Tribunal-2 handed down on July 17, 2013, for his crimes against humanity during the Liberation War in 1971.
Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha led the four-member bench that upheld the verdict.
The full verdict was published on September 30. Later on October 1, the jail authority read out the verdict to Mujaheed.
The Jamaat leader, however, can file review petition within 15 days that is October 15.
