HC adjourns hearing

Update : 17 Apr 2014, 10:13 PM

The High Court yesterday adjourned hearing of pleas lodged by BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia for cancelling the lower court’s orders that indicted her in two corruption cases – Zia Orphanage Trust and Zia Charitable Trust.

The bench of Justice Borhanuddin and Justice KM Kamrul Kader passed the order. Hearing on the petitions registered under the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) began on Wednesday. 

Khaleda’s counsels told the bench that the CrPC was not followed while framing charges. Attorney General Mahbubey Alam, however, argued that the court specifically mentioned offences the former premier was accused of.

On March 19, Judge Basudev Roy of the Dhaka Third Special Judge’s Court passed the indictment orders in two cases and also set April 21 for commencement of the trial with depositions of prosecution witnesses.
