Niko graft case hearing deferred on Khaleda’s health ground

A Dhaka court on Monday set January 15 for the hearing on charge framing against BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and others in the Niko graft case.

 

Dhaka Special Judge Court- 9 Judge Mahmudul Hasan set the date after Khaleda’s lawyer Md Sanaullah Mia filed a time petition on her health complication ground.

 

ACC on December 9, 2007 filed the Niko graft case against Khaleda and four others in connection with a Tk 137.77 loss to the national exchequer caused by the signing of an oil-gas exploration agreement with Canadian company Niko during BNP regime.

 

On May 5, 2008, it submitted a chargesheet against 11 people.

 

On July 9, 2008, the High Court adjourned the case proceedings.

 

Later, Khaleda filed a petition with the HC challenging the legality of the case which the court rejected on June 18, 2015.
