HC scraps Khaleda Zia’s bail plea in graft case

The High Court (HC) on Wednesday scrapped a plea of BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia for bail in Zia Charitable Trust graft case.

A High Court division bench comprising Justice Obaidul Hassan and Justice SM Kuddus Zaman passed the order after holding hearing on the plea for second consecutive day.

Dhaka Special Judge Court-5 on October 29, 2018, sentenced the BNP chief and three others to seven-year imprisonment and fined them Taka 10 lakh each, in default, have to suffer more six months in jail, in the case.

Khaleda Zia on November 18, 2019, filed an appeal against her conviction.

Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the case with capital’s Tejgaon Police Station on August 8, 2010, for embezzling Taka 3.15 crore while police on January 16, 2012, filed charge sheet against four including the ex-premier.

The other three convicts are Khaleda’s former political secretary Haris Chowdhury, the then BIWTA director Ziaul Islam Munna and Monirul Islam Khan, former personal secretary of former Dhaka city mayor Sadek Hossain Khoka.

Khaleda is now behind the bar after being convicted in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case on February 8, 2018. She was sentenced to five-year imprisonment, which later enhanced to 10 by the High Court.
