IO found Mobarak committed war crimesNew Age Online
The investigation officer who probed in to war crimes of Mobarak Hossain Tuesday testified before a tribunal that he primarily found him guilty of committing crimes against humanity in Brahmanbaria during Bangladesh’s Liberation War in 1971.
The investigator and also the 12th prosecution witness against Mobarak--- Shyamal Chowdhury---told the International Crimes Tribunal-1 that he had begun his probe on July 15, 2012 and submitted the investigation report to the chief prosecutor on January 10 this year.
The war crimes investigator said he had visited various crime spots where Mobarak reportedly committed war crimes. Shyamal questioned local people and recorded their statements.
He said he had seized a 145-page report on crimes committed by razakar and peace committee men in Brahmanbaria. The report was sent by Brahmanbaria deputy commissioner to the investigation agency and the documents cited Mobarak as a member of razakar and peace committee.
The investigation officer also exhibited different documents seized by him to the tribunal.
As his deposition completed, defence lawyer Ahsanul Huq Hena began his cross-examination which could not be completed as the tribunal adjourned the proceedings until October 22.
Mobarak was on the dock.
