Dhaka, July 31, 2009 — The government of Bangladesh has asked international organisations and countries to help it with more evidence and documents for the trial of war crimes in 1971, the law minister of Bangladesh Mr Safique Ahmed said on Thursday an international seminar held at Dhaka.

The Liberation War Museum of Bangladesh organised the two-day International seminar on . titled 'Genocide: Truth and justice'

The law minister Shafique Ahmed told that The documents can be found in many countries, he said and added that the government already had had enough evidence to press charges ."We are seeking more evidence to make the trial internationally acceptable so that no question arises after the trial. those people would face trial that had committed crimes against human in association with the Pakistan army in Bangladesh territory.’’

The Minister Said "We have amended International Crimes (Tribunals) Act 1973 to try those who committed crime against humanity. It is difficult to hold the trial of crimes committed 38 years ago. We will form the investigating agency, prosecution and tribunal with honest, skilled and experienced people.”

The law minister Shafique Ahmed said "We will employ senior police officials in the investigating agency and the chief law officers who are experienced and well versed in international law." He sought assistance of the international organisations that have worked on genocide committed in many countries. "Nobody will be brought to justice only for political persecution. The real criminals will be put on trial. ."They will get all facilities in accordance with transparent trial procedure including self defiance.”
