Court Correspondent :
The Special Judge Court-3 of Dhaka on Sunday deferred the hearing on charge framing in the Gatco graft case filed against 21 persons, including BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia to July 23.
Judge-in-Charge of the court, Emrul Qayes, passed the order granting a time petition filed on behalf of Khaleda Zia.
On August 5, 2015, a bench of the High Court Division comprising Justice Md Nuruzzaman and Justice Abdur Rob rejected two writ petitions of Khaleda Zia. She filed the petitions challenging the legality of the graft case lodged under the Emergency Power Act in September of 2007.
