Zia orphanage draft: Accused including Khaleda asked to defend in court
A Dhaka Tribunal has fixed April 7 for the accused including BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in the Zia Charitable Trust graft case to defend themselves in court.

Judge Abu Ahmed Jamadar of Dhaka Special Judge Court 3 fixed the date after recording the depositions of prosecution witnesses in the case on Thursday.

The court also asked all the accused to be present in the court on the day.

A total of 32 witnesses testified in the case. The court also fixed April 7 for the deposition in the Zia Orphanage Trust case.

On August 8, 2011, the ACC filed the Zia Charitable Trust graft case with Tejgaon Police Station accusing four people, including Khaleda Zia, of abusing power in raising funds for the trust from unknown sources.

Other than that, the ACC filed the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case on July 3, 2008 with Ramna Police Station accusing Khaleda Zia, her eldest son Tarique Rahman, now living in the UK after securing bail, and four others for misappropriating over Tk 21. 0 million (2.10 crore) that came as grants from a foreign bank for orphans.
