The death warrant issued by the International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) for condemned war criminal former Jatiya Party state minister Syed Mohammad Qaiser for committing crimes against humanity during the Liberation War in 1971 has reached Dhaka Central Jail.

The death warrant wrapped in red clothes reached the jail on Thursday

Earlier, on January 14 this year, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court upheld the death sentence of Syed Mohammad Kaiser. A four-judge appellate bench headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain pronounced the verdict.

On January 23, 2014, the International Criminal Tribunal sentenced Syed Kaiser to death. He was sentenced to death on seven charges, life imprisonment on four and a total of 22 years in prison on three.

Syed Kaiser appealed against the verdict. The Appellate Division later upheld his death sentence. The court upheld the death sentence on three charges. He was also acquitted of four charges.
