Coal Mine Graft

Indictment hearing on Khaleda Jan 25

A Dhaka court on Sunday set January 25 for holding hearing on charge framing in the Barapukuria Coalmine graft case against BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia and 10 others, reports UNB.

The date was announced by acting Judge Ali Hossain of Dhaka Special Judge Court-2, as the defence lawyers pleaded for time on Begum Zia’s poor health ground.

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on February 26, 2008, filed the graft case against Khaleda Zia and 15 others with Shahbagh Police Station. ACC deputy director Md Abul Kashem Fokir on October 5, 2008, filed a charge-sheet in the case.
