The judge for the International Crimes Tribunal directed the prosecution to resubmit charges against Professor Ghulam Azam by January 5. His chief counsel Abdur Razzak told reporters that the prosecutors failed to submit the formal charges according to legal procedures. This is despite having investigated the allegations against him for more than two years.
Ghulam Azam has spoken frankly to reporters this week from television channels and newspapers denying all charges against him. His robust denial of charges and detailed account of events during 1971 have given credence to his statements whereas the prosecution case has been diminished by their inability to present the case in the correct manner.
