Human Rights Watch to face contempt of court charge for criticizing Ghulam Azam verdict
Tuesday, 20 August 2013
International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) has brought contempt of court charges against Human Rights Watch (HRW) for making comment over verdict and war crimes trial against Ghulam Azam.

State prosecutor Tirun Afroz submitted the charges to registrar of ICT-1 Tuesday.

On August 16, Human Rights Watch, one of the world’s leading independent organizations dedicated to defending and protecting human rights, has published a report saying that: “The trial of Ghulam Azam, the former chief of Bangladesh’s Jamaat-e-Islaami (Jamaat) party, at Bangladesh’s International Crimes Tribunal was deeply flawed and did not meet international fair trial standards.”
