Tunisis's Ennahda Party Chairman Rached Ghannouchi issued a statement following the dead sentence issued on 28 February 2013 against scholar Sheikh Delwar Hossain Sayedee, deputy leader of the Jamaat Islami of Bangladesh and former member of parliament.

Ghannouchi said in the statement that the party "expresses its deep regret and concern over the state of public liberties in Bangladesh particularly the repressive security crackdown on the leaders and supporters of the Islamic movement which has led to the killing of tens of peaceful protesters against the repressive policies adopted by the authorities against the Islamic opposition."

Ennahda condemned "the policy of mass liquidation used by the authorities against the Jamaat Islami of Bangladesh and the political trials which seek to silence all dissident voices" the statement said.

Pledging full solidarity with Sheikh Delwar Hossain Sayedee and his fellow detainees held for false charges, Ennahda called on all international organisations and human rights associations to raise their voices against these dangerous violations and unjust policies.
