Thereport24.com Correspondent, Dhaka:

War criminal and Jamaat-e-Islami leader Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid has filed a review petition against his death sentence.

His counsel Md Shishir Monir filed the petition on Wednesday.

Mujahid’s death sentence for committing wartime offences was upheld in the final verdict of the Supreme Court’s Appellate Division.

The Jamaat leader’s lawyers met him at Dhaka Central Jail on Tuesday afternoon and told reporters that he had decided to file a review petition.

Mujahid’s meeting with his lawyers lasted for around half an hour.

Meanwhile, another condemned war criminal Salauddin Quader Chowdhury, who is a member of the Standing Committee of the BNP, has also filed a review petition.

His death penalty was also upheld in the final verdict handed down by the Appellate Division.
