Bangladesh Court Upholds Death Sentence

Bangladesh’s highest court has rejected a final appeal from Mir Quasem Ali against a death sentence for murder during the 1971 war of independence from Pakistan. Ali financed the Jamaat-e-Islami party.
A Supreme Court bench led by the chief justice rejected Mir Quasem Ali’s final appeal for clemency, his lawyer Gazi M.H. Tamim said on Tuesday: “The chief justice in his verdict said the review is rejected.”
The decision paves the way for Ali’s execution, unless he is pardoned by the president, which commentators say is unlikely, AFP reported.
