Sayedee to spend life in prison
Jamaat leader Delwar Hossain Sayedee will spend the rest of his life in prison and there will be no changes to the Appellate Division’s decision to sentence him to life for war crimes.

Both the state and the defence had filed review petitions of the verdict, with the former asking for the death penalty and the latter asking for an acquittal, reports

But after the hearings on Sunday and Monday, a five-member appellate bench led by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha scrapped the petitions and reaffirmed the Appellate Division’s verdict.
