The authorities on Friday did not allow Khaleda’s lawyers to meet with her, but the relatives were allowed. On Thursday, Judge Dr Akhtaruzzaman of Dhaka’s Fifth Special Judge Court sentenced Khaleda to five years’ imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case. The same court also sentenced five other accused, including her son and BNP’s acting Chairman Tarique Rahman, to 10 years’ imprisonment each and fined them Tk2.10 crore each.
