    Death penalty handed to wife of murdered lawyer Rathis Bhowmik

    Dipa Bhowmik was present in court on Tuesday when District and Sessions Judge ABM Nizamul Haque announced her verdict.

    More than a hundred lawyers from the Rangpur Bar Association were in the courtroom when police produced Dipa in handcuffs before the judge.

    On March 30 last year, Rathis went missing after leaving his home at Babupara on his motorcycle with another person in the morning, his family had said.

    The disappearance of Rathis, who had been a prosecution witness of the International Crimes Tribunal, had caused a stir, leading the police to investigate possible links to militancy and the Jamaat-e-Islami.

    The Rapid Action Battalion then arrested Tajhat High School teacher Dipa and her two colleagues, Kamrul Islam and Motiar Rahman.

    Following their arrest, Rathir’s body was found buried under sand in a construction site for a building owned by Kamrul’s brother on April 3.

    The 55-year-old had been buried there for four to five days, officials said. Dipa told law enforcers that she had been involved in an affair, which was the cause for Rathis’ murder.

    Police then filed charges in court against Dipa and Kamrul, saying the two killed Rathir so they can get married. Both were teachers at Tajhat High School.

    Kamrul, who had been ill from diabetes and heart disease, died in jail on November 10, according to authorities.

    Rathish was a special public prosecutor in the murder trial of Japan national Hoshio Kuni, law secretary of the ruling Awami League’s Rangpur District Committee, president of the district unit of Bangladesh Puja Udjapon Parishad, a trustee of the Hindu Welfare Trust and general secretary of Sammilita Sangskritik Jote in Rangpur.

    The couple had two children, a son and a daughter. The son is a law student while the daughter is studying at night grade.

    Khalaf murder convict Mamun hanged

    By United News of Bangladesh

    A condemned killer of Saudi embassy official Khalaf Al Ali was hanged at Kashimpur High Security Central Jail here on Sunday night.

    Saiful Islam Mamun was hanged at 10:01pm, said jail super M Shajahan Ahmed.

    Later, an ambulance carrying his body started for his village home in Bagerhat, he said.

    Earlier, Mamun’s relatives met him at the jail, the jail super said.

    On October 7, 2018, the Supreme Court dismissed a review petition filed against its judgment that upheld Mamun’s death penalty in the murder case.

    The SC upheld the High Court verdict that gave death sentence to Mamun, and life term to three others - Md Al Amin, Akbar Ali Lalu and Rafiqul Islam - for killing the Saudi embassy official.

    Khalaf Al Ali, 45, a non-diplomatic official with the consular section of the embassy, was shot to death near his Gulshan residence on the night of March 5, 2012.

    A murder case was filed with Gulshan Police Station against five people, two days after the killing.

    On December 30, 2012, a Dhaka court sentenced all the five accused of the case to death.

    However, the decision was overturned when the convicts’ appeal and death sentence were sent to the HC.

    In 2013, the High Court acquitted fugitive Selim Chowdhury, commuted the sentences of Md Al Amin, Akbar Ali Lalu and Rafiqul Islam to life in prison and upheld the death sentence of Saiful Islam Mamun.

    The state then filed an appeal with the Supreme Court in 2014.

    ISIS bride Shamima Begum will be Hanged if she gets sent to Bangladesh instead of the UK, country’s foreign minister reveals

    Bangladesh's chief diplomat has increased the pressure on Britain by insisting the jihadi bride is not their problem

    ISIS bride Shamima Begum faces hanging if she tries to enter Bangladesh, the country's foreign minister has revealed.

    The British born schoolgirl was stripped of her UK citizenship earlier this year after she fled to join the murderous cult four years ago aged 15.

    But in an interview with ITV Bangladesh foreign minister Abdul Momen warned the 19-year-old she faces capital punishment through hanging if she tries to enter the country.

    Under international law, a person's citizenship cannot be revoked if doing so would make them stateless but the British government has claimed Begum has dual nationality with Bangladesh through her father.

    However Begum has insisted she wouldn't go to Bangladesh and had never stepped foot in the country.

    Now the country's chief diplomat has increased the pressure on Britain by insisting the Jihadi bride is not their problem.

    He told ITV: "We have nothing to do with Shamima Begum, she is not a Bangladesh citizen and she has never applied for a Bangladesh citizenship.

    "If anyone is found to be involved with terrorism we have a simple rule, there will be capital punishment.

    "The rule is she should be hanged."

    Describing his country's laws as a "model in eliminating all terrorists" he said Bangladesh had "zero tolerance" for ISIS and its allies.

    He also blasted the British government for refusing to take back the Bethnal Green resident, saying his own country would "open our doors to save humanity".

    Begum left the UK in 2015 with two friends and was found in a Syrian refugee camp in mid-February.

    Whilst living in Syria she married a Dutch ISIS fighter called Yago Riedijk and had three baby children, all of whom died as infants.

    The 19-year-old, who has called herself "weak" for wanting to return to Britain, said she didn't regret travelling to Syria and had not been fazed by the sight of "severed heads" in bins.

    Countdown to Jamaat leader Azharul's execution begins

    By Abdullah Alif and Mizanur Rahman
    Dhaka Tribune

    The countdown to former Jamaat-e-Islami assistant secretary general ATM Azharul Islam's execution begins with the death warrant having reached the jail from the International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) on Monday afternoon.

    War crimes convict Azharul now has two options before him –file a review petition with the Appellate division, and if the verdict upholds the death sentence after the review petition hearing, the Jamaat leader will then have the option of filing a mercy petition to the president.

    In the event of a rejection of the petition for mercy, the government will move to execute the death row inmate.

    Speaking to Dhaka Tribune, Deputy Registrar of ICT Amit Kumar Dey said: "The death warrant has been sent to Dhaka Central Jail in Keraniganj and the district magistrate of Dhaka."

    Md Zahirul Islam Zahid and Taposh Chyandra Roy, officials of the ICT, conveyed the death warrant to the jail authorities.

    On receipt of the warrant, the countdown to the execution of war criminal ATM Azharul Islam got under way.

    ICT Prosecutor Razia Sultana Chaman said, however, that if the convict filed a review petition, the countdown would be paused. After disposing of the petition, the government may take steps to carry out the verdict.

    Meanwhile, Advocate Mohammad Shishir Monir, defence counsel for ATM Azharul Islam, has said: "As per law, we will file a review petition within 15 days of receiving the certified copy of the verdict."

    "Before the disposal of the review petition, there is no option to raise concerns over a mercy petition."

    On October 31 last year, the Supreme Court upheld the death sentence of former Jamaat-e-Islami assistant secretary general ATM Azharul Islam on charges of crimes against humanity committed during the 1971 Liberation War.

    The apex court based on a majority decision upheld the death sentence handed down to the Jamaat leader by the ICT on charges of involvement in murder and genocide, along with a five-year prison sentence on different charges relating to abduction and torture.

    The ICT, however, acquitted Azharul of the charges of abetting the Pakistani military in detaining, raping and torturing women in Rangpur town, for which he had been sentenced to 25 years of rigorous imprisonment.

    On December 30, 2014, International Crimes Tribunal-1 convicted ATM Azharul in the war crimes case, after finding him guilty in five of the six charges leveled against him.

    Former Jamaat leader Azharul, who was arrested from his Moghbazar home in Dhaka in 2012 on war crimes charges, had filed the appeal against his death sentence on January 28, 2015.

    On June 18, the Appellate Division began hearing arguments on the appeal from both the state and the defense team.

    The court completed hearings and deferred the matter as a Case Awaiting Verdict (CAV) on July 10.

    Majed was sentenced to death in absentia in 1998, as the article mentions the legal timeframe to file appeals has passed, this is should be considered serious.

    Bangabandhu killer Majed finally behind bars

    By Abdullah Alif, Hasan Al Javed, Sanaul Islam Tipu and Mizanur Rahman
    Dhaka Tribune

    The self-proclaimed killer fled Bangladesh after Awami League returned to power in 1996

    After spending life as a fugitive for more than 20 years, Abdul Majed, one of the convicts in the killing of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, has finally landed in jail.

    Forty-five years after he took part in the 1975 assassination of Bangladesh’s founding father, the former Bangladesh Army captain was arrested in the early hours of Tuesday by the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime(CTTC) unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police.

    According to a document forwarded to the court by the CTTC, he was detained from the capital’s Gabtoli while moving around on a rickshaw. However, after the arrest, police said that he had been picked up from the city’s Mirpur area.

    He was produced before the court of the Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, which sent him to prison.

    No lawyer represented Majed in court. He was subsequently taken to Dhaka Central Jail in Keraniganj.

    One of the 12 assassins awarded the death penalty for the 1975 killings, Majed had been hiding in Libya and Pakistan before moving to neighbouring India and residing there for the last few years, according to media reports at various times.

    A counter-terror official told the media that Majed crossed over into Bangladesh on March 26 through the border in Mymensingh after the coronavirus pandemic unfolded.

    Preparations to execute verdict

    Hours after Majed landed in jail, the government said it had begun preparations to carry out the execution of the Bangabandhu murder convict.

    “The formalities to execute the verdict against Abdul Majed have begun. The sentence will be executed once those are done with,” Law Minister Anisul Huq said in a video message on Tuesday.

    Majed does not pose any danger of spreading Covid-19 in the Keraniganj prison as he had been put in solitary confinement designated for convicts condemned to death, he said.

    Meanwhile, Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen described Majed’s arrest as “good news amidst the corona crisis” and hoped that the remaining fugitive Bangabandhu killers would be brought back soon to face justice.

    "We hope it will be possible to bring back the remaining convicts to face justice in Mujib Year," he said.

    No chance to escape execution

    According to experts, Majed has no option for a legal battle anymore.

    “Majed is a convict and cannot appeal against his death sentence because he was absconding for a long time,” Supreme Court Bar Association President Advocate AM Aminuddin told Dhaka Tribune.

    “The only course left for him now is a mercy petition seeking presidential clemency. The prison authorities will be cleared to execute Majed if it’s turned down,” the lawyer said.

    According to the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPc) and other related laws, Majed failed to appeal or file a petition for a review of the verdict against him within the stipulated period.

    However, under a legal provision in line with Section 5 of the 1908 Limitation Act, Majed can seek a delay of execution on the ground that he was misled by the High Court order in ascertaining the prescribed period of limitation.

    A fugitive for over two decades

    According to counter-terror officials, Majed said during initial interrogation that he had been living in neighbouring India for more than 20 years.

    The former army officer, who later served in different government positions, including at Bangladesh missions abroad, fled to India after the Awami League assumed office in 1996.

    He later travelled to Libya and then Pakistan, before returning to India, where he had been living in different states. But for the last three to four years he had been living in Kolkata and was in touch with his family in Bangladesh.

    According to Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan, Majed had been at the Defence Officers’ Housing Society (DOHS) in Dhaka’s Mirpur, where his wife lives, after entering Bangladesh.

    The father of four daughters and a son, Majed hails from the southern island district of Bhola.

    All of his assets in his native Batamara village in the district’s Borhanuddin Upazila were confiscated after his conviction in the Bangabandhu killing case.

    He was among the group of army officers, who were at the Dhanmondi 32 residence of Bangabandhu on August 15, 1975 and seized control of Dhaka radio station immediately after the killings.

    Majed was also involved in the murder of the four national leaders in Dhaka Central Jail on November 3 the same year, the home minister said on Tuesday.

    He then worked at Bangabhaban, before leaving Bangladesh the same year, along with the other army officers involved in the assassination, for Libya.

    Majed was then appointed to the Bangladesh embassy in Senegal by military ruler Ziaur Rahman.

    In 1980, he left the army and was appointed to the Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) with the rank and status of a deputy secretary. He was subsequently promoted as secretary and served as the director of Department of Youth Development and Department of National Savings.

    Majed went into hiding after the Awami League won the national elections in 1996.

    The architect of Bangladesh’s independence, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, was killed along with most of his family members at his home. His daughters, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Sheikh Rehana, survived as they were abroad at the time.

    The investigation into the assassinations was stopped by an Indemnity Ordinance, which saved the self-proclaimed killers from facing justice.

    After the Awami League assumed office in 1996, the ordinance was abrogated in November the same year, clearing the way for the killers to be brought to justice.

    In 1998, a Dhaka sessions judge’s court found 15 people guilty and awarded the death penalty. In 2001, the High Court acquitted three but upheld the death sentences of 12.

    In 2010, the Appellate Division upheld the verdict. The same year, five of the convicts -- Syed Farooq Rahman, Sultan Shahriar Rashid Khan, Bazlul Huda, AKM Mohiuddin Ahmed, and Mohiuddin Ahmed -- were hanged.

    Another convict Aziz Pasha died as a fugitive in Zimbabwe.

    Majed was one of six absconding convicts along with Abdur Rashid, Shariful Haque Dalim, M Rashed Chowdhury, SHMB Noor Chowdhury and Risaldar Moslemuddin, until he was arrested on Tuesday.

    Edited out redundant information

    Bangabandhu’s killer Majed hanged

    By Arifur Rahman Rabbi and Hasan Al Javed
    The Dhaka Tribune

    A fugitive for over 20 years, Majed was arrested on Tuesday

    Abdul Majed, one of the convicts in the killing of Bangladesh’s founding father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, has been executed at the Dhaka Central Jail.

    “The convict was hanged at 12:01am Sunday,” Inspector General (Prisons) Brigadier General AKM Mustafa Kamal Pasha said.

    He said other concerned officials including a magistrate, police representatives witnessed the execution as required by the law.

    "This was the first case of the execution since Dhaka Central Jail was relocated in Keraniganj," he added.

    Defying the coronavirus restriction, a number of people emerged in front of the jail at midnight.

    Earlier, the prison authorities called Majed’s wife for a final visit as per the last wish of the death-row convict.

    His body will be taken to Bhola for burial today although two MPs, including a former Chhatra League leader from Bhola have said they will not let that happen in their district.

    After the execution, Law Minister Anisul Huq told the Dhaka Tribune: “We have pledged to the people that we will make sure the judgement that has been delivered by all the courts of the country, will be properly implemented and executed and I think for the 6th one we have been able to do it and we will continue till we have completed the implementation of the judgement.”

    There are five other killers of Bangabandhu and his family who are on the run.

    Earlier on Friday, four family members, that did not include the convict’s wife, met him at prison.

    Majed’s death sentence was executed within four days after President Abdul Hamid turned down his clemency plea on Wednesday.

    The same day, the Dhaka District and Sessions Judge’s court issued the death warrant for Majed, who was arrested in Dhaka on April 7.


    That's got to be a new one five whole days in custody then the gallows.

    Bangladesh plans capital punishment for rape as protests flare

    The government plans to introduce capital punishment in rape cases as protests have continued over the recent incidents of sexual violence against women.

    A proposal for the legal amendment will be placed at a cabinet meeting on Oct 12, Law Minister Anisul Huq told bdnews24.com on Thursday.

    We are making the proposal on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasinas orders. We will propose an amendment to the penalty in the current law by including capital punishment for rapists, he said.

    Different organisations have been protesting in Dhakas Shahbagh and other parts of the country since Tuesday over the assault of a woman in Noakhali and the rape of another in Sylhets MC College.

    Rape incidents, however, continued to make headlines. A platform of leftist student groups - Bangladesh Against Rape called a rally at Shahbagh for Friday.

    Many of the protesters have demanded death penalty for the rapists. Some netizens suggested the suspects be shot dead in so-called "crossfire".

    Local and international human rights groups have issued statements condemning the incidents, and calling for legal and social reforms.

    The maximum punishment under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act for committing rape is life term imprisonment.

    In the event the rape victims death, the maximum penalty is death. The convicts also face fines.

    The deadline for submission of investigation report is one month while Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunals have 180 days to dispose of a case. But the timeframe is seldom followed in most cases.

    The incidents of rapes and sexual violence against women rock the country regularly, but exemplary punishment is not common.

    Most of the cases get forgotten due to delay in trial. A lack of proper medical tests of the victims, their fear of ignominy and interference of influential people make it difficult to get justice.

    As many as 4,541 rape cases have been reported in the past 16 years. The accused were punished in only 60 of these incidents, according to data from the tribunals.

    At least 889 women have been raped in Bangladesh between January and August in 2020, according to legal rights group Ain O Salish Kendra or ASK.

    As many as 192 others faced rape attempts and sexual harassment in this period, while nine of the victims took their own lives.

    Rights activists believe the numbers are much higher because many of the victims do not complain to the police.
