The International Crimes Tribunals (ICTs) of Bangladesh are exclusively national tribunals, operating under the International Crimes (Tribunals) (Amendment) Act (ICT Act 1973 (amended)). These high powered special international crimes tribunals have been prosecuting and punishing individuals who committed, directly or indirectly, crimes against humanity, genocide, war crimes, and other serious crimes under international law during the Bangladesh war of independence from March to December 1971. This chapter examines the judicial application of IHL in the ICTs’ cases involving war crimes and related legal issues arising in the course of the trials and from the judgments.
