BNP chief on bail until July 31

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s bail has been extended until July 31—in the Zia Charitable Trust corruption case.

Khaleda, serving a five-year sentence for corruption, was not taken to court on Tuesday as she was ill, her lawyer Sanaullah Mia said. The defence counsel sought extension of the bail. 

After a hearing, the fifth Special Judge’s Court said the BNP chief would be on bail until July 31.

The Anti-Corruption Commission on August 8, 2011, accused Khaleda, and three others, of embezzling Tk31,543,000 from the charitable trust—which is named after her husband. The commission pressed charges in court on January 16, 2012.

The other accused are Khaleda Zia’s then-political adviser Harris Chowdhury, his then-personal-secretary Ziaul Islam Munna, and former Dhaka mayor Sadeque Hossain Khoka’s then-personal- secretary Monirul Islam Khan.

Harris has been absconding since the beginning of the case.
