03 May,2016

RTNN News Desk:The Supreme Court has fixed May 5 for delivering its verdict on Jamaat-e-Islami chief Motiur Rahman Nizami’s review petition filed seeking review of his death penalty.

A four-member bench of the Appellate Division led by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha fixed the date on Tuesday afternoon.

Earlier in the day, the bench began hearing the review petition field by the Jamaat-e-Islami chief.

Nizami filed the review petition on March 29 seeking acquittal. The International Crimes Tribunal issued his death warrant on March 15 after the SC released its full verdict.

This review petition will be the last legal battle for the war criminal. If rejected, Nizami will have the chance to seek presidential pardon. If he does not receive it or opts to not seek clemency, the government will carry out the death sentence.
