The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has submitted to the Supreme Court the concise statement of appeals against the High Court order that granted bail to BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case. It was submitted to the concerned division of the Appellate division on Sunday, said ACC lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan. On February 8, Dhaka’s Special Court 5 sentenced the former prime minister to five years' imprisonment in the graft case. She was then sent to old central jail in the city’s Nazimuddin Road. On February 25, Khaleda failed to secure bail in the case as the High Court said it would pass an order on her bail petition after receiving all the documents relating to the judgment from the lower court. On March 19, the Supreme Court had stayed Khaleda’s bail till May 8 in the case and asked the ACC to submit the concise statement within two weeks. Hours after the stay order was issued, Khaleda’s lawyers filed a petition to the apex court seeking withdrawal of the stay order. Before that, the ACC and the state on March 15 had filed two leave-to-appeal petitions before the Appellate Division challenging Khaleda’s bail granted by the High Court on March 12. On March 14, the Supreme Court stayed until March 18 the High Court order granting a four-month interim bail to the BNP chief.
