Interpol issues 'red notice' against Bangladeshi politician

World Bulletin / News Desk

Interpol have issued a "red notice" against a former Bangladeshi politician found guilty of war crimes committed during Bangladesh's war for independence in 1971. 

The notice was issued against 82-year-old Abdul Jabbar for involvement in looting, arson, murder and abduction as crimes against humanity. 

Jabbar was found guilty after being tried in absentia by the International Crimes Tribunal, a Bangladeshi court tasked with investigating war crimes committed in 1971, when up to 3 million people were killed according to official figures. 

Interpol stated that Jabbar, who has been sentenced to imprisonment until death, was thought to be staying in the United States. 

Jabbar had been a senior figure in the Jatiya party before later joining the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party.
