Hearing on appeals against Khaleda bail Wednesday

  • Print
The High Court order granting a four-month interim bail to BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in a graft case remained in force as the Supreme Court on Tuesday did not pass any order on two petitions seeking cancellation of bail.

Appellate Division chamber judge Justice Hasan Foez Siddique sent the two petitions to the full bench of the Appellate Division after partially hearing those.

The regular Appellate Division bench, led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, is set to hear the petitions on Wednesday.

Earlier in the morning, two separate appeals were filed with Appellate Division against the HC order granting interim bail to the BNP chief in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

Advocate Sufia Khatun filed a petition on behalf of the state while lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan lodged another one on behalf of the Anti-Corruption Commission.

On Monday, the High Court granted the interim bail to Khaleda Zia.

On February 22 last, BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia filed a petition with the High Court seeking bail in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case. On the day, the HC asked the lower court to submit all the relevant documents within 15 days.

On February 25, Khaleda Zia failed to secure bail in the case as the High Court said it would pass an order on her bail petition upon receiving all the documents relating to the judgment from the lower court.

On February 8 last, the Dhaka Special Court-5 convicted the former Prime Minister and BNP chairperson and sentenced her to five years' imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case. She was then sent to old central jail at Nazimuddin Road in the city.
