Mojaheed hopes 'justice' in verdict review: Family

Condemned war criminal Ali Ahsan Muhammad Mojaheed hoped that he will get "justice" after he seeks review of the Supreme Court ruling that upheld his death penalty.

Tamanna-e-Jahan, wife of Mojaheed, told this to reporters after she, her son Mabrur Ahmed and three other family members met the death row convict at Dhaka Central Jail around 11:00am.

Mojaheed is now mentally and physically well, said Tamanna.

Mojaheed, secretary general of Jamaat-e-Islami, said the allegations brought against him were false and baseless, according to his family members.

On October 3, Mojaheed told his lawyers that he will file a petition with the Supreme Court seeking review of its judgement that had upheld his death penalty for killing intellectuals during the Liberation War in 1971.

The family members of Mojaheed met him for the first time after the Supreme Court released its full verdict.

The International Crimes Tribunal, which held the trial of the Jamaat leader for his crimes against humanities in 1971, issued execution warrant on October 1, a day after the apex court released the full verdict.
