DHAKA: The International Crime Tribunal-1 said that the trial proceedings of detained Nayeb-e Ameer of Jamaat-e- Islami Delwar Hossain Sayedee will be continued without his appearance in person.
A three-member tribunal led by Justice Nizamul Haque passed the order on Wednesday noon.
Earlier on Sunday, the ICT deferred the cross examination of witnesses against Jamaat leader Delwar Hossain Sayedee till Wednesday as Sayedee’s counsel pleaded to defer the cross examination of the witnesses for two weeks mentioning his ongoing treatment at Ibrahim Cardiac Hospital.
On June 13, Rafiq Bin Sayedee, elder son of detained Jamaat leader Delawar Hossain Sayedee, died of cardiac attack.
On June 14, Sayedee was freed on parole to attend the funeral of his elder son.
Sayedee was admitted to BIRDEM hospital as he had fallen sick on the way to jail after funeral.
He was kept in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of BIRDEM hospital in the city. Later, he was shifted to Ibrahim Cardiac Hospital.
In the latest development, the detained Jamaat leader was shifted to the national Heart Foundation from Ibrahim Cardiac Hospital for better treatment on Wednesday noon.
Confirming the matter, Sayedee’s younger son Masud-bin-Sayedee told banglanews, “He was shifted to National Heart Foundation at about 12noon.”
Medical source said, “He was kept in the CCU of the hospital and a six-member medical board was formed to give him better treatment.”
Earlier on Tuesday, the Jamaat leader, detained for trial on charges of wartime crimes against humanity, appealed for release on parole for treatment abroad.
