A four-member bench of the Appellate Division set the date

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court has set Tuesday to pass an order on a review petition filed by BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia—against its order asking the High Court to dispose of her appeal in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

A four-member bench of the Appellate Division, on Monday, headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, fixed the date, reports UNB.

Earlier, on May 16, the Supreme Court upheld the High Court’s order granting bail to the convicted BNP chief in the graft case. It  also issued an order to dispose of Khaleda's appeal, challenging the lower court's verdict in the case, by July 31.

Khaleda's lawyer later filed a petition, on July 26, for an extension,, and presented it to the court on July 29.

Later, two petitions, including for a review and time extension, were kept in the cause-list.

On February 8, the Dhaka Special Court-5 convicted the former prime minister and sentenced her to five years' imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

She was then sent to old central jail at Nazimuddin Road.
