SC order on Khaleda’s review petition Thursday

The Supreme Court on Monday fixed Thursday for passing an order on a review petition filed by BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia against a High Court order that asked to dispose of her appeal challenging a lower court verdict sentencing her to five years’ imprisonment by July 31 in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

A four-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain fixed the date, reports UNB.

Advocates A J Mohammad Ali, Joynal Abedin and Khandaker Mahbub Hossain stood for Khaleda Zia while  attorney general Mahbubey Alam for the state and Advocate Khurshid Alam for the Anti-Corruption Commission.

Earlier on May 16, the SC upheld the High Court order that had granted bail to convicted BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

The SC also issued an order to dispose of Khaleda's appeal challenging the lower court's verdict in the case by July 31.

Later, Khaleda’s lawyer filed a petition on June 25 seeking review of the order.

On February 8, 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.
