The full court of the Appellate Division fixed the date on Thursday

The Supreme Court has asked the medical board formed to treat BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia to submit a health report before the court on December 5.

The full court of the Appellate Division, headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, fixed the date on Thursday.

The Appellate Division also set December 5 to deliver its order on BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia's bail over the corruption case of Zia Charitable Trust.

Earlier on November 25, the Supreme Court fixed Monday for the appeal hearing in the Zia Charitable Trust graft case.

BNP Chairperson filed the appeal with the Appellate Division against a High Court order that had rejected her bail plea in the same case on November 14.

On July 31, a High Court bench rejected Khaleda's bail petition in the Zia Charitable Trust corruption case, in which she was sentenced to seven years of imprisonment.

The court also ordered a status quo on the sub-ordinate court's order to confiscate around 69,421.49 acre of land bought in the name of the Zia Charitable Trust and asked it to send all of the documents related to this case to the apex court.

On April 30, the High Court accepted Khaleda’s appeal petition challenging a trial court verdict.

On November 18, 2018, Khaleda filed the appeal on 20 grounds, asking the court to scrap the verdict along with the fine and grant her bail.
