A citizen committee will conduct ‘symbolic trials’ of the 195 members of the Pakistani Army who are accused of committing crimes against Bengalees during Bangladesh’s Liberation War.

The committee, styled International War Crimes Public Trial, announced the plan at a press conference in Dhaka on Friday.

Shipping Minister Shajahan Khan said the trials would be held at Suhrawardy Udyan in Dhaka on Mar 26, the Independence Day of Bangladesh.

He said the initiative was part of their movement to press for real trials of the Pakistan Army men.
