The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT)-1 on Monday set Tuesday to pronounce judgment in crimes against humanity case against an alleged Razakar Md Abdus Samad alias Firoz Khan from Rajshahi.

Justice Md Shahinur Islam, chairman of the three member panel of the ICT-1, set the date through a short order Monday morning.

The tribunal on July 8, kept the verdict on CAV (curia advisory vault, meaning the court awaits judgment) as both the prosecution and defense concluded their arguments in the case on that day.

The first tribunal on September 9, 2018, framed four charges of crimes against humanity against Khan and the trial was initiated through placing of opening statement on October 10.

A total of 15 prosecution witnesses, including the investigation officer, testified against the accused, but the defense failed to produce any witness to vouch for Khan’s innocence.
