Dhaka, Mar 19 (IBNS) :   The Bangladesh Supreme Court on Monday stayed till May 8 the High Court order which granted bail to BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case, media reports said.

A full bench of the Appellate Division led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain passed the order.

Earlier on March 15, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC)  and the state had filed two leave-to-appeal petitions before the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court challenging the BNP chief’s bail, granted by the  High Court.

On March 14, the Supreme Court had stayed until Sunday a High Court order granting four-month interim bail to BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia  in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

The Dhaka Special Court-5 convicted the former Prime Minister and BNP chairperson and sentenced her to five years’ imprisonment on February 8 in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case. She was then sent to the old central jail at Nazimuddin Road in the city.
