DHAKA (23 Dec.) : The parliamentary standing committee on home ministry expressed concern over possible attack by the activists of Jamaat-Shibir at the International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) with a view to foiling the ongoing war crimes trial.
The parliamentary standing committee also recommended tightening security of the ICT to conduct the trial procedures in safe and sound.
Chairman of the parliamentary committee Muhammad Sayedul Haque came up with the apprehension while talking to reporters after a meeting on Sunday.
The chairman of the parliamentary standing committee told the journalists that the existing security system of the ICT is insufficient.
Home Minister Dr Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir, State Minister for Home Shamsul Haque Tuku and IGP Hasan Mahmud Khandaker were among others present in the meeting.
“Mission of the recent attacks on law enforcers by the Jamaat-Shibir activists is to foil the war crimes trial,” he said.
So, the committee decided to ensure security of the ICT as “we suspect that they (Jamaat-Shibir) also can carry out attacks at the Tribuna”, he added.
Sources said law enforcers have been given direction to keep alert to prevent any attack by the terrorists of the Jamaat-Shibir.
