Counsels for death row convict Muhammad Kamaruzzaman met the Jamaat-e-Islami leader at Dhaka Central Jail this morning.

Four defence lawyers entered the jail and visited the Jamaat-e-Islami leader. They spent 45 minutes with Kamaruzzaman from 10:15am.

The meeting was held a day after the government asked the prison authorities to make preparations for his execution. The apex court on Monday upheld his death penalty for war crimes.

Prior to the meet the Jamaat leader, Shishir said, “I clearly say that what the law minister and the attorney said regarding the review petition is totally unlawful and baseless. There is no legal obligation.”

“They even could not produce any provision of law in this regard,” Shishir said adding that It is the constitutional right of Kamaruzzaman to file the petition.

Law Minister Anisul Huq and Attorney General Mahbubey Alam said there is no scope for Kamaruzzaman to file the review petition against the apex court verdict.

Shishir hoped that Kamaruzzaman will get the access of filing the review petition.
