A court in Dhaka today has fixed August 10 for the appearance of BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia in 11 cases filed on charges of sabotage and sedition.
Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Qayesh fixed the date.
Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Benis Assistant Anisur Rahman confirmed the matter on Sunday.
Earlier, the date of Khaleda’s appearance in these 11 cases was fixed on June 9. The normal judicial proceedings of the court were closed due to the outbreak of coronavirus, as a result, the court set a new date after the current activities became normal.
During the BNP’s strike in early 2015, police filed 8 cases with Darussalam police station and two with Jatrabari police station, while a person filed the sedition case.
In early 2016, police submitted a charge sheet against Khaleda Zia and other accused.
Along with Begum Zia, the notable accused in these cases are BNP leaders Amanullah Aman, Habib-un-Nabi Khan Sohail and Sultan Salauddin Tuku.
