Indictment hearing in two cases against Khaleda July 21

A Dhaka court today set July 21 for holding indictment hearing on two cases, one for observing fake birthday on National Mourning Day and another for stigmatizing the War of Liberation, filed against BNP chairperson and former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia.

Today (June 30) was the date for holding indictment hearing, but Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Asaduzzaman Noor reset the date, allowing a time plea of the defence.

Khaleda Zia's counsel Advocate Masud Ahmed Talukder filed the time plea, saying his client could not appear before the court due to illness.

Journalist Gazi Jahirul Islam lodged the fake birthday case against Khaleda Zia on August 30, 2016.

Jananetri Parishad President AB Siddiqui filed another case on November 3, 2016, against Khaleda Zia and her late husband Ziaur Rahman for stigmatizing the War of Liberation by rehabilitating anti-Liberation War elements.
