Staff Correspondent: BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s lawyer Sanaullah Mia said they will file an appeal with the High Court (HC) on Thursday for his client who has been jailed in a graft case.

Sanaullah said this while talking to journalists at the jail gate on Tuesday noon.

“We came to know from the court that we are likely to get the certified copy of the verdict in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia tomorrow (Wednesday). If we get the certified copy tomorrow, we will move to file an appeal with the High Court the following day,” Khaleda’s lawyer Sanaullah said.

On February 8, a special court convicted the BNP chief and sentenced her to five-year rigorous imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case. Later, she was sent to the old Central Jail on Nazimuddin Road in Dhaka.
