Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said Nuremberg trial system should be introduced to punish the war criminals.
In that system, there will be no need for any witness against the war criminals.
“There are lots of documents of the crimes of the war criminals. So, I think there is no need for any witness to punish them. Justices in Nuremberg didn’t take any witness. We can use this type of trial system in our country,” said the premier while talking to her party leaders on the occasion of her Homecoming Day at her official residence Ganobhaban on Thursday morning.
The prime minister said the witnesses sometimes gets threats and even becomes victim of attacks adding that the attackers of witnesses will also be treated as war criminals.
Sheikh Hasina, also the Awami League president, urged her party leaders and activists to look after the witnesses of war crimes.
Mentioning that Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman wanted to build the country as an ideal state Hasina said he had started getting engaged in massive development work.
“The conspirators wanted to make Bangladesh a failed state and that’s why they killed Bangabandhu.”
Terming the Ziauar Rahman regime ‘horrible’ the premier said: “All the institutions of an independent country were destroyed.
She also claimed this attitude had been there until 1996 when Awami League returned to power after 21 years.
Claiming that the present government is working hard to make true the dream of Bangabandhu to make Bangladesh free from poverty and hunger, she said the soul of the Father of the Nation will get peace with this achievement.
The Prime Minister extremely criticized the people who likes military regime saying that “They never see democracy when Awami League comes to power, but they love licking boots…they feel good when power grabbers sit in the throne.”
Sheikh Hasina also recalls the days when she was elected president of Awami League.
She said: “I think, it’s a long time, it won’t be nice to be there in the post, you should think about the new leadership. I’ll be there always for the party and the country.”
She said that it is not a problem to achieve anything if the organisation remains strong, united and beside people.
Hasina asked all the leaders and activists of the party to build themselves with the ideals of Bangabandhu who never did politics for his personal gains.
