The ACC filed a case against five including  Zia in 2007, for abusing power in signing a deal with Canadian company Niko for exploring and extracting gas

A Dhaka court on Tuesday set November 24 to hold a hearing on charge framing in Niko graft case against BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia and others.

Judge Sheikh Hafizur Rahman of Dhaka 9th special judge court passed the order Wednesday morning at the newly built courtroom in front of Keraniganj Central Jail.

Wednesday was fixed for holding hearings on charge framing in the case, but prime accused Begum Khaleda Zia failed to appear before the court on health grounds and made her lawyers to plead for time.

Allowing the defence plea, the court then adjourned the hearing till November 24.

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the case against five including Begum Khaleda Zia with Tejgaon police station on December 9 in 2007, for abusing power in signing a deal with Canadian company Niko for exploring and extracting gas.

The ACC on May 5 in 2008, submitted the charge-sheet against 11 people including Khaleda Zia. The ACC accused them of incurring a loss of more than Taka 13 thousand crore of state exchequer by that deal.
