Khaleda to seek bail in graft cases today

STAFF REPORTER

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia will appear before a makeshift court in Dhaka’s Bakshibazar today to seek bail in Zia Orphanage Trust and Zia Charitable Trust graft cases. Advocate Sanaullah Mia, one of the counsels for Khaleda, told The Independent that the BNP chairperson would appear before the court around 11am seeking bail in the cases. The graft cases - Zia Orphanage graft case and Zia Charitable Trust graft case -were filed in 2008 during the military-backed emergency government.

Earlier, on November 30, a Dhaka court cancelled Khaleda’s bail and issued arrest warrants against her in the cases.

The BNP chief could not appear before the court on November 30 due a strike enforced by left parties.

On October 19, the makeshift court in Bakshibazar granted the BNP chief an ad-interim bail after she surrendered before it and sought bail.

According to the prosecution, today the makeshift court is scheduled to hear arguments in Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case, while Khaleda will place her self-defence statements in Zia Charitable Trust corruption case.

On July 3 in 2008, Anti-Corruption Commission filed the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case with Ramna Police Station accusing Khaleda Zia, her eldest son Tarique Rahman, and four others for misappropriating over Tk 2.10 crore that came as grants from a foreign bank for orphans.

On August 8, 2011, the commission filed the Zia Charitable Trust graft case with Tejgaon Police Station accusing four people, including Khaleda Zia, of abusing of power in raising funds for the trust from unknown sources.
