195 Pakistani war criminals must be tried: Mozammel

DHAKA, Dec 26, 2016 (BSS) - Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Huq today said the country will prosecute 195 identified Pakistani war criminals for sure.

"Though we are bringing the people of our country those committed crimes against humanity in 1971, to justice, but we are yet to try the 195 identified war criminals from Pakistan. But we will do it for sure and if necessary, we will go to international court for that," Mozammel said.

The minister said these while inaugurating Muktijuddher Bijoy Manch organized by Bangladesh Gano Ajadi League at Liberation War Museum in the capital. The function was presided over by party's president advocate SK Shikder.

"Militancy was patronized in our country in the past and anti-liberation elements were in power. But the present government is committed to eliminate militancy and build a non-communal Bangladesh by ensuring equal rights for people of all religions," Mozammel added.
