26 May 2013: ICT-2 Daily Summary – Hartal Coverage

Today the Tribunal was scheduled to hear matters in the following cases:

  1. Chief Prosecutor vs. Mujahid
  2. Chief Prosecutor vs. Abdul Alim

Today the Defense counsel in Mujahid’s case was absent, claiming personal difficulty resulting from the nationwide hartal called by BNP-led 18 party alliance. The court adjourned the Defense Closing Arguments until tomorrow.

The case of Abdul Alim was also adjourned because the Prosecution was unable to produce Prosecution witness 21 for the continuation of his cross-examination. The case will resume on  5 June 2013.
