Khaleda Zia at court

Dhaka, Dec 21 (Just News) : BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia has appeared before a Dhaka Special Judges Court in connection with Zia Orphanage Trust graft and Zia Charitable Trust graft cases.

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia arrived at the special makeshift court in Bakhshibazar around 11:07am on Thursday.

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case for embezzlement of over Tk 2.1 crore by forming a “fake” trust which existed only on paper in 2008.

In 2011, the anti-graft watchdog filed another case, accusing four persons, including Khaleda Zia, on charges of abusing power in setting up Zia Charitable Trust.
