Bangladesh Court commits Islamist leader’s death sentence to life imprisonment

Bangladesh’s Supreme Court has commuted the death sentence given to Islamist leader Delwar Hossain Sayeedi to life imprisonment.

The country’s war crimes tribunal sentenced Sayeedi to death in February 2013 for crimes against humanity.

He was found guilty of genocide, killing and rape during the 1971 independence war in Bangladesh.

Sayeedi was one of the country’s most popular Islamic preachers, drawing hundreds of thousands to preaching sessions when he was still active.
