ICT suggests media to be cautious
Saturday, 03 March 2012
The International Crimes Tribunal suggested the media on Sunday to be more cautious in publishing or broadcasting reports on the tribunal’s proceedings. The three-judge panel also asked the media men to refrain from “improper” reporting. The judges came up with the suggestions after Tajul Islam, a counsel for war crimes accused Delawar Hossain Sayedee, prayed to the tribunal to bring contempt of court proceedings against a Bangla daily. The defence appealed to the tribunal on Thursday citing two reports published in the daily. The tribunal on Sunday said, “This kind of reporting is unwarranted and it should be stopped.” It also asked the daily to publish a rejoinder in two days. The tribunal gave the instruction before it started hearing on framing charges against Salauddin Quader Chowdhury in connection with his crimes against humanity committed during the 1971 Liberation War.
