Court directs Khaleda for self-defense in trust graft case


Dhaka-The Special Judge Court-3 of Dhaka on Wednesday directed BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia to appear in his court for declaring self-defence in the Zia Charitable Trust graft case filed against four including the BNP Chief. Judge Abu Ahmed Jamader of the court passed the order fixing October 6 as the next date of the case at the makeshift set up court of old city’s Bakshibazar area. Earlier, the court had fixed August 31 for making her self-defence in the case.
Earlier, on the day, her counsel Sanaullah Mia submitted a petition seeking more time, as she could not appear to the court due to security reasons on the occasion of hartal (shutdown) called by the Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh.
Besides, advocate Sanaullah Mia told media-men that a time petition was lodged with the court as a leave-to-appeal challenging the legality of a High Court order remains pending with the apex court.
The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the Zia Charitable Trust graft case with Tejgaon Police Station accusing them of raising funds for the trust from unknown sources, ‘abusing power’.
