Khaleda Zia files writ for better treatment - National

Dhaka: BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia on Sunday filed a writ petition with the High Court seeking its directive on the government to send her to a specialised hospital in Dhaka for treatment.

Barrister AM Mahbub Uddin Khokon, a lawyer for Khaleda, confirmed the matter.

Citing from the petition, he said the BNP chairperson is seriously ill as she has been suffering from different diseases, therefore, she needs to be admitted to a specialised hospital for treatment.

Khaleda Zia has been serving in jail since February 8 this year after a Dhaka court convicted and sentenced her to five years’ imprisonment in Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case.

Khaleda is now facing 37 cases. She has secured bail in all but three cases -- two in Comilla and one in Dhaka.
