The amendment to the concerned law keeping provision to try an organisation for wartime offences might be passed in the first parliament session of next year, Law Minister Anisul Huq said today. The amendment proposal to International Crimes (Tribunals) Act 1973 will be placed before the cabinet during the current month or the first week of January next year for approval, he added. After the approval, a bill on the amendment to the law will be placed in the parliament for passage, the minister said. The draft bill to ban Jamaat-e-Islami will also be placed in the cabinet this month and is expected to be passed in the first session of the parliament next year, he said. He was talking to reporter after attending an arbitration programme as chief guest at a hotel in Dhaka this morning. The law minister in May this year said that it is not possible to try Jamaat for its crimes against humanity as there is no rule for punishing the war criminal organisation. Later in June, the government drafted an amendment to the ICT act with a provision to ban on a war criminal organisation.
