Tureen Afroz, a prosecutor of International Crimes Tribunal, was removed from her post on Monday for “breaching discipline and professional conduct and committing serious misconduct”.

Law, Justice and Parliament Affairs Ministry issued an order in this regard, which is now available on the ministry’s website.

She however could not be reached for any comments instantly.

Tureen, who earned much acclaim for her performance in dealing with the war crimes cases, was withdrawn by the chief prosecutor's office in May last year from all cases and asked the prosecutor to submit all documents.

She was appointed on February 2, 2013.

The chief prosecutor's office of International Crimes Tribunal has requested the law ministry to launch an investigation against prosecutor Tureen Afroz over an alleged meeting held secretly with an accused of crimes against humanity committed during the Liberation War.

A letter, signed by Chief Prosecutor Ghulam Arief Tipoo, said that Tureen held a meeting with war crimes accused and former acting director general of NSI Oahidul Haque at a hotel.

Oahidul recorded the conversation between him and Tureen. The investigation agency and prosecution got a copy of the conversation.

On April 25, the ICT-1 sent Oahidul to jail in a case filed for allegedly committing crimes during the Liberation War in 1971.
