The chief justice-led four-member appeals bench delivered the final verdict on Chowdhury's war crimes on Wednesday.
 
His son Hummam Quader Chowdhury told reporters after the verdict that they will go for a review. “Our lawyers will brief you about the verdict.  The only thing I will say is a review plea will be filed.”
 
The International Crimes Tribunal-1 sentenced Chowdhury to death on Oct 1, 2013, for murdering Kundeshwari Oushadhalaya owner Nutan Chandra Singha, genocide of Hindus at Sultanpur and Unsattar Parha, and abduction and murder of a Hathazari Awami League leader and his son Sheikh Alamgir.
 
The Appellate Division has now confirmed the tribunal’s verdict after a year and nine months.
 
Chowdhury is the fifth to get a verdict on the appeal against the tribunal’s judgment.
