HC rejects Khaleda’s petition

Staff Correspondent

DHAKA: The High Court has rejected petition filed by BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia challenging her indictment in Zia Orphanage Trust and Zia Charitable Trust corruption cases.

On March 19, the Special Judge’s Court of Dhaka-3 framed charges against Khaleda, Tarique Rahman and seven others in the cases filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

In July 2009, the ACC filed the Zia Orphanage graft case against Khaleda, Tarique and four others for embezzling over Tk 2.1 crore by forming the fake trust.

The anti-graft body filed the Zia charitable graft case in August 2011 against Khaleda and three others for abusing power in setting up the charity.
