The lawyers of BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia has received the certified copy of the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case’s 632-page verdict on Monday afternoon.
Advocate Sanaullah Mia, BNP law affairs secretary and one of the defence counsels, confirming the matter to media said, “They have got the verdict copy at 4:30 pm this afternoon.”
The lawyers, however, did not confirm yet whether they will proceed to file an appeal for Khaleda Zia’s release.
Earlier on February 8, a Dhaka special court-5 convicted Khaleda Zia and sentenced her to five-year imprisonment in Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case.
She is now in old central jail at Nazimuddin Road in the capital.
