SQC defence asked to end closing arguments on August 12New Age Online
The International Crimes Tribunal-1 on Wednesday asked the defence lawyer for detained BNP lawmaker Salauddin Quader Chowdhury to bring an end to their closing arguments on August 12 when the tribunal is scheduled to resume hearing on war crimes case against the defendant.
The tribunal directed the defence to comply as the court completed its arguments for the fourth day on Wednesday.
The tribunal, on completion of examining defence witnesses on July 24, asked the prosecution to complete their arguments in three days while the defence should complete theirs in four days.
The prosecution took one more days and completed its closing arguments in four days, the tribunal said, adding that they are thus allowing the defence one more day after the Eid-ul-Fitr holidays.
The tribunal said the defence must complete its arguments on August 12 and the defence will get opportunity to submit written submission on that day.
In the beginning, Salauddin’s defence lawyer Ahsanul Haque Hena sought an adjournment to the day’s hearing on the ground of his sickness but the tribunal asked him to begin his arguments.
Hena began his arguments and stayed focused on some legal issues and discredited the investigation officer of the case.
