Dhaka, Nov 15 – The High Court deferred till November 18 to pass its order on the writ plea filed by BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia challenging the legality of the decision of the government to send her back to jail from BSMMU hospital. The HC bench of Justice Sheikh Hassan Arif and Justice Razik-Al-Jalil passed the order after Khaleda Zia’s lawyer placed supplementary information before it on Thursday (November 15). Earlier on November 13, the bench fixed this day for delivery of its order.
Advocate AJ Mohammad Ali moved for Khaleda Zia while Additional Attorney General Md Mokhlesur Rahman stood for the state.
Barrister Nawshad Jamir, a lawyer for Khaleda, filed the writ petition on November 11. Khaleda’s lawyers said, “Sending BNP Chairperson to jail without completing her treatment is against the fundamental right. The prayer also made in the writ to ask the authority to continue her treatment after admitting her into a specialized hospital.”
Besides, the court was prayed to issue a rule as to why Khaleda Zia will not be given enough treatment.
9 persons, including the Home Secretary, the prison authorities, and Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University authorities were made respondent to reply.
Khaleda Zia was admitted to BSMMU on October 6 as per HC directive and was taken back to city’s old central jail on November 8.
Khaleda Zia has been serving her five years’ sentence in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case since February 8, 2018. She is now imprisoned in the city’s abandoned old central jail. – Special Correspondent
