Law Minister Anisul Haque on Wednesday said the jail authority was directed to take all necessary preparations to carry out the execution of Mohammad Kamaruzzaman in war crimes cases.
The Law Minister made the disclosure at a press briefing at his own office at Gulshan in the capital in the afternoon.
Anisul Haque said according to the jail code, the counting of seven days will start from the moment when the convict hears that his appeal petition has been rejected and his death penalty order holds.
He also said Kamaruzzaman can seek president’s clemency confessing his all crimes as per constitutional provisions.
Replying to a question, he said the government will not compromise with anyone in dealing with war crimes cases.
On Monday, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court upheld the death sentence against the Jamaat leader.
On May 9, 2013, the International Crimes Tribunal-2 (ICT-2) awarded capital punishment to the Jamaat assistant secretary general for his crimes against humanity during country’s Liberation War in 1971.
