Bangladesh Nationalists Party (BNP) Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia claimed that there’s no justice in the country anymore.
She came up with the allegation while addressing a press conference on Wednesday at her Gulshan office ahead of the verdict in Zia Orphanage Trust case.
Blaming the government, Khaleda said, “It’s a false case and a tool to harass me and my family.”
“I believe the court will acquit me of all charges,” she hoped.
BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, BNP standing committee members Moudud Ahmed, Abdul Moyeen Khan, Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain and Mahbubur Rahman were also present at the press briefing.
Judge Dr. Akhtaruzzaman of the Special Court-5 in Dhaka fixed February 8 for delivering its verdict in the case after concluding the defense arguments and rebuttal at the court at Alia Madrasa premises in Bakshibazar.
A total of six people including BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and her son Tarique Rahman are accused of embezzling Tk 21 million in foreign donation meant for the Trust.
