The Appellate Division of High Court will hear the petitions filed by the Government and the ACC on Wednesday.
The ACC filed the petition seeking to freeze the bail granted to BNP Chairperson and former Prime Minister Begum Khaleda Zia.
The chamber judge heard the arguments of the state and the Anti-Corruption Commission on Tuesday. However, the court refrained from issuing any order.
Later, it forwarded the matters to the full appellate bench.
On Monday, the HC granted Khaleda a four-month interim bail in Zia Orphanage Trust Graft Case.
Just after a day, the attorney general’s office and the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) moved the Supreme Court’s chamber judge against the decision.
The state had argued that the appeal would be heard quickly and so there would be no need for bail.
However, the High Court granted bail on four grounds:
1. Precedent of granting bail in case of a five-year jail term.
2. The case documents are with the court, but proceeding for an appeal hearing are yet to complete, allowing the convict to be granted bail.
3. Khaleda was out on bail during the trial and appeared in hearings in line with the court’s order.
4. The convict’s age and health conditions.
The court ordered the paper-book for the appeal hearing to be made within the time of her bail.
Either side can submit an appeal for hearing when the paper-book is ready, the court said.
