SQ Chy’s wife-son indicted for verdict leak
15 February 2016, Nirapad News: A Dhaka Court framed charges against Salauddin Quader Chowdhury’s wife and son among seven for leaking the convict’s war crimes verdict.
Bangladesh Cyber Crimes Tribunal Judge KM Shamsul Alam passed the order on Monday (February 15) fixing March 28 for hearing deposition.
Wife Farhat Quader Chowdhury and son Hummam Quader Chowdhury pleaded not guilty to the charges. Among the seven accused in the case, six were present in court. The other is absconding.
On October 1, 2013, Salauddin Quader found guilty of war crimes during the 1971 war and was awarded death sentence by ICT.
But before the verdict was announced, the BNP leader’s wife and other members of the family showed ‘copies of the verdict’ to journalists, claiming they had found them on the internet.
