On January 21, 2013 we made a history and it would not be an exaggeration if we term this day as another Victory Day for Bangladesh. The first verdict given by the International Crimes Tribunal has helped the nation has been relieved of the burden of conscience it had been bearing for the long forty-two years. The trial of the heinous war criminals of '71 is essential for the establishment of rule of law. It will do justice to the victims of the War of Independence. It can be said that the impartiality and credibility of the proceedings have maintained international standard. This is because the trials held by the Tribunals give the accused the right to defend himself in the court, right to appeal etc.
Now it is time to rejoice. But this is not the end. All of us, regardless of our political and personal views, should get united and help to ensure the trial of other perpetrators of crimes against humanity.
