Ganojagaron Mancha, an anti-war crime platform, is expecting capital punishment of Jamaat-e-Islami chief Moulana Motiur Rahman Nizami which is likely to be delivered on Wednesday.

"He (Nizami) had committed crimes against humanity and genocide during the War of Liberation in 1971 which is known to all. So, the people of the country as well as Ganojagaron Mancha is expecting his capital punishment," said Ganojagaron Mancha leader Dr Imran H Sarker  while addressing a press conference on Tuesday afternoon at Shahabag Projonmo Chattar.

He said Ganojagaron Mancha will take position at Shahabag Projonmo Chhattar from 10am on Wednesday regarding Nizami's verdict.

The Mancha activists also declared a four-day long programme titled 'Jagoron Jatra' while they will march to Tetualia from Dhaka to press home their six point demands.

They will also hold several rallies in 12 districts during the march which will be started from  October 30 and continue till November 2.

Replying to a query, Imran told the reporters that the schedule of 'Jagoron Jatra' could be changed if Wednesday's verdict does not "meet our expectation."

Earlier on Tuesday, a tribunal in Dhaka fixed for Wednesday for delivering the long-awaited judgement in the war crimes case against Jamaat-e-Islami chief Motiur Rahman Nizami.

Also, the International Crimes Tribunal-1 was scheduled to deliver the verdict on June 24 but the court deferred the judgement as Nizami was not produced in the courtroom "due to illness".
