Abdul Alim’s son Sazzad Bin Alim said his father was not in Jaipurhat during Bangladesh’s Liberation War in 1971 and his father was nursing his ailing mother then at a place where they hid themselves.
The prosecution witnesses gave false and imaginary statements before the tribunal, he claimed.
He also said ‘We have been denied justice and will go to the appellate division against the verdict.
Alim’s lawyer Tariqul Islam Tarique said, ‘We are denied justice and will go to the appellate division, we are sure that we will get justice there.’
Chief prosecution coordinator M A Rahman said, ‘We are satisfied at the verdict. The tribunal said that the crime committed by Alim deserved highest punishment. But he was given imprisonment until his natural death considering his old age, ailment and physical disability.’
Asked whether the prosecution would file an appeal before the appellate division seeking Alim’s highest punishment, Rahman said they would decide about it after reading out the full judgement.
