SC order on Khaleda’s review pleas Thursday
The Supreme Court will pass an order on Thursday on two petitions filed by BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia seeking review of its earlier order that asked the High Court to hear and dispose of her appeal in Zia Orphanage Trust Corruption case by July 31.
A four-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain fixed the date after concluding hearing on the review petitions.
in her review petitions, Khaleda said the Appellate Division cannot fix any date for the HC to hear or dispose of any appeal as per the constitution.
The apex court on May 16 upheld the High Court order that granted four-month bail to Khaleda Zia in Zia Orphanage Trust Corruption case in which she was sentenced to five years imprisonment.
The same day, the SC ordered the High Court bench led by Justice M Enayetur Rahim to hear and dispose of by July 31 the appeal of Khaleda against the lower court verdict that gave her the sentence.
Khaleda in June filed two separate petitions with the Supreme Court seeking review of its order.
