Health condition of Maulana Nizami improved
Friday, 04 July 2014
Bangladesh’s prison authorities have claimed, the health of condition of Maulana Matiur Rahman Nizami, the Ameer of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami has improved 10 days after a special tribunal deferred the verdict on war crimes charges against him due to his sickness.

“We have sent his (Maulana Nizami’s) latest health report to the (Bangladesh’s) International Crimes Tribunal…His physical condition is now stable,” a prison spokesman told newsmen Friday.
Senior superintendent of Dhaka Central Jail Farman Ali said Maulana Nizami was sent to specialized state-run Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) for check-up yesterday and doctors there said his physical condition was stable.

Ali said on return from the BSMMU, 69-year old Nizami was sent back to his designated cell at the prison instead of the jail hospital, where he was kept for the past several days.
On June 24, the tribunal deferred the verdict on Maulana Nizami at the last minute after authorities said he was sick and could not be moved from jail.
