The International Tribunal-2 (ICT-2) on Wednesday will deliver its verdict on Jamaat-e-Islami leader Abdus Subhan for his alleged crimes against humanity during the Liberation War in 1971. 

Tribunal chairman Obaidul Hasan set the date on Tuesday morning.

The Jamaat leader is facing nine charges, including killing and genocide.

He was the General Secretary and subsequently the Vice-President of 'Peace Committee' in Pabna during the 1971 war.

On September 20, 2013, Subhan was arrested from Tangail in a case of looting.

BDNEWS24 adds, Subhan allegedly played a key role in setting up units of the Peace Committee across the district and forces like Razakar, Al Badr, Al Shams and Mujahid that were used to suppress the Bengali liberation struggle.

Born in 1936, at Toilokundi village of Pabna's Sujanagar Upazila, Subhan was the chief of Jamaat's Pabna unit and sat on the party's highest policymaking body during the post-Liberation War era.
