Staff Correspondent: A Dhaka court has issued a production warrant against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in Gatco corruption case.

Judge Abu Syed Dilder of Dhaka Special Judge’s Court-3 passed the order on Thursday.  

On September 2, 2007, the ACC lodged the Gatco case against Khaleda, her youngest son late Arafat Rahman Koko, Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer Motiur Rahman Nizami and 10 others.

According to the case statement, there was corruption in the awarding of a contract to Global Agro Trade (Pvt) Company Ltd (Gatco) for container management at inland depots in Dhaka and Chittagong. The graft allegedly cost the state exchequer over Tk 1,000 crore.
