Prime Minister’s ICT adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy on Wednesday said the government should immediately issue a new ‘Interpol Red Notice’ for BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman who has been sentenced to life-term imprisonment in August 21 grenade attack cases.
After the verdict in the cases, Joy writes in his Facebook post, “We should also ask the UK to extradite him.”
“We don’t have an official extradition treaty with the UK, but UN charter requires any member states to extradite or convict in their courts upon request. The UK has recently extradited four ISIS terror suspects to the US even though they may face the death penalty,” the ICT adviser writes.
Joy adds: “It took 42 years until our Awami League Government came to power and we were able to bring Jamaat to justice for war crimes during our War of Liberation. It took 34 years and the Awami League’s return for my family to get justice for the murder of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu and my family on August 15th, 1975.”
“Today after 14 years we are getting justice for the grenade attack on my mother and the murder of many people I knew well, including Ivy Rahman,” he says.unb
