Jamaat-e-Islami leader Mohammad Kamaruzzaman met fellow partyman and Diganta Media Corporation chief Mir Quasem Ali on Thursday.
Ali, also a Jamaat executive council member, faces war crimes charges.
Security officials said Kamaruzzaman had been brought to the tribunal at around 9:30am where Ali also faces trial in another case. The two Jamaat leaders talked for a while.
Kamaruzzaman embraced Ali while being taken out of the tribunal’s prison.
The prosecution is filing formal charges against Mir Quasem Ali.
Ali was allegedly the Chittagong unit commander of Al-Badr, a vigilante outfit mobilised by Jamaat's erstwhile student wing Islami Chhatra Sangha and was third in outfit's command structure.
International Crimes Tribunal-2 has started reading out the summary verdict against Mohammad Kamaruzzaman who faces seven charges of war crimes allegedly committed during the Liberation War.
