Zia charitable case

HC order on Khaleda’s trial proceedings Oct 14

UNB

The High Court yesterday set October 14 to pass its order on a review petition seeking stay on the trial proceedings in Zia Charitable Trust corruption case in her absence, reports UNB.

A bench of Justice Obaidul Hassan and Justice SM Kuddus Zaman set the date after concluding the hearing of the petition filed on September 27.

On September 20, Special Judge's Court-5 ordered continuation of the trial proceedings of the case at the Old Dhaka Central Jail in absence of BNP chairperson.

Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Ministry issued a gazette notification to hold the trial of Khaleda in the case at the jail after setting up a makeshift court there on September 4.

The case was filed by the Anti-corruption Commission with Tejgaon Police Station in August, 2011, accusing Khaleda and three others of abusing power to raise funds for the trust from unknown sources.

The BNP chairperson has been serving five years rigorous imprisonment as she was convicted in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case on February 8 this year.

Currently, Khaleda Zia is admitted to the BSMMU for better treatment in compliance with a court order.

The High Court on October 4 directed the government to immediately admit Khaleda Zia to the BSMMU and form a five-member medical board afresh for her treatment.
