for committing crimes against humanity during the 1971 Liberation War.
The 73-year-old Jamaat nayeb-e-ameer was handed down the penalty for eight wartime criminal offences as his party enforced a shutdown threatening anarchy across the country.
The three-member tribunal said eight out of 20 charges pressed against Sayedee were proved beyond doubt. Sayedee received death penalties in two cases—filed for the killing of Ibrahim Kutti and Bisha Bali.
Disagreeing with the judgement vehemently, the convict stood up on the dock and blamed the judges for “not giving the verdict from the core of their heart”.
The verdict came due to the excessive pressure from “some atheists of Shahbagh”, he reacted.

Many present in the courtroom yelled at Sayedee to keep his mouth shut, calling him “promanito razakar”, which means a proved collaborator.
At 2:23pm, the convict was taken out of the tribunal premises in a prison van and was taken to Dhaka Central Jail.
He'll appeal. If BNP isn't in power by then the appeal will be turned down. Then he'll ask for clemency. If BNP isn't in power by then it will be denied. Then they'll hang him. Whether BNP is in power or not he'll rot in hell.
