Abdur Razzaq (born 1949) is a Bangladeshi barrister and Assistant Secretary General of political party Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami. He was the chief defence counsel at Bangladesh's International Crimes Tribunal until the end of 2013, when he left Dhaka for London. There he practices at the English Bar.

International Crimes Tribunal

Razzaq was the chief defence counsel at Bangladesh's International Crimes Tribunal, where Jamaat leaders, in particular, were indicted. Among those defended by Razzaq were former leader Ghulam Azam, leader Motiur Rahman Nizami, executive council member Delwar Hossain Sayedee, Secretary General Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mojaheed, and Assistant Secretary General Abdul Quader Mollah. Razzaq allegedly was harassed in various ways by government officials to make it difficult for him to perform his professional duties. Human Rights Watch called for him to be allowed to conduct a full and fair defence without hindrance.
