ICT-2 also fixed July 15 for starting opening statement in the case. On May 2, ICT-2, had issued arrest warrant against them after taking charges against them into cognizance.

Meanwhile, State Minister for Liberation War Affairs, AB Tajul Islam, told Parliament on June 24 that the Government plans to create a comprehensive list of war criminals 42 years after independence. No official list of war criminals has been compiled since Bangladesh became a free nation after a bitter war of independence. The Independent, June 25 2013.

War crimes convicts can seek President's clemency, says Law Minister Shafique Ahmed: Law Minister Shafique Ahmed on June 11 said the convicted war criminals can seek President's clemency as the country's Constitution does not stipulate as to who can file appeal to the President and who cannot. Shafique said if any war crimes convict files appeal to the President, he would take a decision in this regard taking into consideration the importance of the case. However, we must accept the President's decision whatever it is. He further said the International Crimes Tribunals (ICTs) were taking time to pronounce verdicts for the sake of fair judgment and transparency. NewAge, June 12, 2013.
