The Supreme Court Appellate Division has rejected a petition filed by BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia to change the court hearing the Zia Orphanage Trust Graft case against her.
A five-member bench led by acting Chief Justice M Wahab Miah passed the order on Monday.
After concluding the hearing earlier on Sunday, the bench had set Monday for delivering the verdict.
Khaleda Zia had filed the petition on August 6.
Later, the High Court rejected the petition on August 20.
The Anti Corruption Commission filed the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case on July 3, 2008 with Ramna Police Station accusing Khaleda Zia, her eldest son Tarique Rahman, now living in the UK after securing bail, and four others for misappropriating over Tk 21. 0 million (2.10 crore) that came as grants from a foreign bank for orphans.
