Dinajpur, Oct 1 (bdnews24.com)—Opposition Jamaat-e-Islami says the government is plotting over the war crimes trial issue that was 'settled 39 years ago'.

Secretary general A T M Azharul Islam repeated claims of his party that has its top-brass facing charges of brutality in 1971 that the governing Awami League is invoking the issue to cover their failure in running the country.

Islam was addressing a meeting on Friday at the party's Dinajpur headquarters attended by its district and upazila-level chiefs and deputies of the Rangpur-Dinajpur zone.

"Not even a single general diary on war crime charges had been filed anywhere in the country since 1971. The people know what motives are behind the recently filed cases," the Jamaat leader said.

Islam said that Jamaat is a registered (with the Election Commission) political party and cannot be stopped from by making arrests and filing cases and added that their top leaders will be freed by strong street campaigns.

Top Jamaat leaders including chief Matiur Rahman Nizami, Ali Ahsan Muhammad Mojahid and Delwar Hossain Sayeedee, are currently on trial with the International Crimes Tribunal for alleged war crimes — murder, loot, arson and rape —during the war.
