A parliamentary watchdog Wednesday finalised its report on the much-hyped 'International Crimes (Tribunals) Amendment Bill 2013', hours after it was placed in parliament, reports UNB.
The report was finalised at the special meeting of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Ministry held at the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban with committee chairman M Fazle Rabbi Miah in the chair.
Committee members State Minister for Law Advocate Quamrul Islam, Abdul Matin Khasru, Khan Tipu Sultan, Advocate M Ziaul Haque Mridha, M Nurul Islam Sujon, Sheikh Fazle Nur Taposh and Fazilatunnesa Bappi attended the meeting.
Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Barrister Shafique Ahmed attended the meeting at the special invitation of the committee.
Earlier in the day, the 'International Crimes (Tribunals) (Amendment) Bill 2013' was placed in parliament seeking equal scope for appeal against verdict on any war crimes case by both defence and prosecution within 30 days of pronouncing the sentence.
Shafique Ahmed tabled the bill in the House amid thumping of desks by the lawmakers, including a smiling Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
Later, it was sent to the parliamentary body for scrutiny.
Alles, was dem Interesse der Regierung nicht dient, müsste geändert werden. Der Tag nähert sich, an dem diese Regierung nicht mehr an der Macht wäre. Nur dann könnte diese unverschämte Gruppe von Verbrechern nicht alles so haben, wie sie es immer wünschen.
