9 December 2013: ICT-2 Daily Summary – Hartal Coverage of AKM Yusuf, PW-15 and PW-16

Today the Tribunal heard matters in the following case:

  1. Chief Prosecutor vs. AKM Yusuf

Due to ongoing unrest and blockades, our researcher was unable to be physically present in court this day.  Accordingly, our coverage was compiled from direct communication with the Tribunal and the Parties to the proceedings.

Despite the ongoing countrywide blockade, ICT-2 was scheduled to record the cross-examination of PW-15 in the case against AKM Yusuf. As has happened in previous days, junior defense counsel, Mr. Gazi M H Tamim informed the tribunal that the senior counsel, Mr. Syed Mizanur Rahman would not be able to appear in the court because of the blockade. The Tribunal closed the cross-examination of PW-15 after the junior defense counsel confirmed that he could not conduct the cross-examination in the absence of his learned senior counsel.

The Court then recorded the examination-in-chief of PW-16. The cross-examination of this witness has been scheduled to be recorded on 10 December 2013, although junior Defense Counsel did pose one question to the witness today. Continue reading

Today the Tribunal heard matters in the following case:

  1. Chief Prosecutor vs. AKM Yusuf

Due to ongoing unrest and blockades, our researcher was unable to be physically present in court this day.  Accordingly, our coverage was compiled from direct communication with the Tribunal and the Parties to the proceedings.

ICT-2 was scheduled to record the cross-examination of PW-13 in the case against AKM Yusuf. However, junior defense counsel, Mr. Gazi M H Tamim informed the tribunal that the senior counsel, Mr. Syed Mizanur Rahman, could not appear in court due to the hartal. The Tribunal elected to close the cross-examination of the witness, because junior defense counsel confirmed that he would be unable to proceed with the cross-examination in the absence of his senior counsel.

The Tribunal then proceeded to record the examination-in-chief of PW-14. The Court fixed 3 December 2013 for recording the cross-examination of this witness.   The Bench emphasized that, if the Defense chose to continue their absence on hartal and blockade days, the Court would continue in their absence, rather than sit idle. As it had done with PW-12 and PW-13, the Court would simply close the cross-examination of PW-14 and proceed to the next witnesses if Defense chose not to be present to conduct the questioning.
