Hours after the Liberation War Affairs minister claimed that the ministry published the Razakars' list as provided by the home ministry, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said his ministry had sent a note on corrections to the list but it was not followed accordingly.
"The Liberation War Affairs ministry should have made corrections to the list according to the note provided by the home ministry," the minister said today, Somoy TV reports.
Earlier in the day, Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque apologised for publishing freedom fighters' names in the Razakars' list.
The home ministry provided the list, he said at a programme at Shilpakala Academy in the capital today.
Names of five people, including International Crimes Tribunal counsel Ghulam Arif Tipu, are on the list of Razakars.
The other such people on the list are advocate Mohsin Ali, advocate Abdus Salam, former deputy commissioner Abdur Rauf and police official SS Abu Talib.
On December 15, the Ministry of Liberation War Affairs published the names of 10,789 Razakars who had collaborated with the Pakistani occupation forces during the 1971 Liberation War and committed crimes against humanity.
