Lawyers meet Molla in jailNew Age Online
Three lawyers met their client war crimes convict Abdul Quader Molla in the Dhaka Central Jail Tuesday morning.
The lawyers Abdur Razzaq, Tajul Islam and Shishir Monir discussed with him about filing a review petition, jail officials said.
Referring to the jail code, lawyers advised their client Quader Molla to go for presidential mercy, if he wishes so, after December 21 or 22.
The lawyers said they will meet their client on December 21 or 22.
In their next meeting, Molla will inform the lawyers whether he would go for presidential mercy or not, lawyers said.
The senior superintendent of Dhaka Central Jail Forman Ali said that he told Molla to think whether he would seek presidential reprieve. But Molla did not give any answer.
Forman said the jail authority would execute the death warrant, the moment the government asked them to do so.
The Appellate Division on September 17 sentenced him to death following a government appeal against the Tribunal 2 verdict that on February 5 had sentenced him to life in prison.
The chief war crimes prosecutor, Golam Arief Tipoo, on March 3 filed an appeal against the ‘inadequacy of the sentence’ of Molla on five charges and against his acquittal of the other charge.
