12 Oct 2010: Sayedee hearing

On 22 September, 2010 the Tribunal, had adjourned its hearing concerned with the prosecution's application for the arrest and detention of Delwar Hossain Sayedee as he was not present in court. See relevant blog. Sayedee was already in prison relating to non-war crimes related offences.

I was not present in the Tribunal, but a colleague took notes for me.

Sayedee was again on 12 October 2010 not brought before Tribunal on the grounds of illness and the Tribunal Chair, Justice Nizamul Huq again adjourned the hearing with the following order:
"The suspected person, Delwar Hossain Sayedee, has not been produced before this tribunal today. The production warrant says that this suspected person is sick and unable to move and, as such, could not be produced. As this tribunal earlier expressed its desire to express the order on the application by the prosecution in the presence of the suspected accused, we are not inclined to produce this matter today. The defence has submitted a supplementary statement, a submission form, not to issue a warrant of arrest against this suspected accused. Let it be kept on record that the next date will be 2 November, 2010. The prison authority is directed to produce this suspected accused on that date previously. If, on that date, the suspected accused remains sick, he must be produced before this tribunal on that date in an ambulance, if required. "[The tribunal] issues a production warrant accordingly. That a copy of this order is sent to the prison authority along with this production warrant for further action."
