Khaleda’s bail extended until July 19

The High Court on Thursday extended the bail of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia until July 19 in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

The HC bench of Justice M. Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman passed the order following a petition filed by Khaleda’s lawyer.

The HC also adjourned the hearing on the review petition filed by the  BNP chief against a lower court verdict sentencing her to five years' imprisonment in the graft case.

Earlier, in the day, the HC started hearing on the review petition around 11 am following the order of the Supreme Court.

Khaleda’s lawyer Abdur Rezak Khan read out the FIR from the paper book while AJ Mohammad Ali read out the charge sheet before the court.

Barrister Moudud Ahmed said the bail of Khaleda Zia in the case expired today and the lawyers filed a petition before the court seeking extension of the bail .

Earlier on July 5, a petition was filed with the High Court seeking extension of its earlier order granting four-month interim bail to Khaleda Zia in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

On March 12, the HC granted four-month bail to Khaleda in the case which will expire on July 12.

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.
