Hearing starts on plea for stay on MiG-29 case

The hearing on an application seeking stay on the operation of the High Court verdict that revived the MiG-29 scam case against detained former prime minister Sheikh Hasina began at the Supreme Court yesterday.
Mahmudul Islam, a counsel for the Awami League president, moved the stay petition.
On September 6 last year, the High Court, upon an interim government petition, discharged Hasina's plea for quashing the charge of shady deal on purchase of eight fighter jets from Russia, clearing way for the case proceedings.
A seven-member full court of the Appellate Division, headed by Chief Justice M Ruhul Amin, heard the long-pending case.
Prior to adjourning the hearing, the apex court stayed for a day the proceedings of the case at Dhaka Divisional Special Court that had earlier fixed March 13 for appearance of the accused.
