Dhaka, Feb 13 – Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said that BNP’s chairperson Khaleda Zia, who is serving her five year sentence on a corruption charge, has not been shown arrested in others cases filed against her.“Khaleda Zia was not shown arrest in other cases. Now, she has been jailed in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case. The BNP’s leaders were spreading propaganda on the issue and it has no base,” Kamal told the reporters at his secretariat office yesterday.
“Khaleda Zia is facing production warrant (PW), asking jail authorities to produce her before court, against two cases-Nico graft case and Getco graft case. Next hearing of the cases would be held on February 18 and March 4 this year and now it is the matter of the court and the jail authorities whether she (Khaleda) will appear before the court or not,” he said.
Earlier, Inspector General (IG) of Prison Brigadier General Syed Iftekhar Uddin said that a production warrant against Khaleda Zia in two cases reached to the jail on Monday.
A Dhaka special court sentenced Khaleda Zia to five years’ rigorous imprisonment on charge of Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.
The BNP chief now is serving her five year sentence at central jail located at the city’s Nazimuddin road. – Staff Reporter
