BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia on Monday morning appeared before a court here to place her self-defence statements in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case filed by the Anti Corruption Commission.
Khaleda appeared before Judge Abu Ahmed Jamadar of Dhaka Special Judge’s Court-3 at Bakshibazar around 11:11am.
On Thursday, the court fixed January 30 as the date of hearing and asked the BNP chairperson to appear before it.
The court also warned that it would cancel her bail if she fails to appear before it.
The ACC filed the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case on July 3, 2008 with Ramna Police Station accusing Khaleda Zia, her eldest son Tarique Rahman, now living in the UK after securing bail, and four others for misappropriating over Tk 21. 0 million (2.10 crore) that came as grants from a foreign bank for orphans.
