Bail to Khaleda Zia stayed by Bangladesh SC

khaleda-Zia-700-01

Supreme Court of Bangladesh has upheld its order that stayed the bail granted by the High Court to former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia in a 2015 murder case.

Consequent to the order, 72-year-old three-time former premier and opposition leader Zia will have to stay in jail for at least another month, even if she secures bail in other cases, reports say.

Zia, the chairperson of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), was jailed for five years in February in connection with the embezzlement of 21 million taka (about USD 250,000) in foreign donations meant for the Zia Orphanage Trust, named after her late husband Ziaur Rahman, a military ruler-turned-politician.

A four-member appellate bench led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain upheld the stay on the High Court decision granting Zia bail in the Cumilla murder case over the firebombing of a bus in February, 2015, the report said.

The apex court also ordered the High Court to hear and dispose of the case over the bail in four weeks.
