Bangladesh Court Declines To Hear Khaleda's Bail Appeal


A Dhaka court declined to hear the bail petition of detained former prime minister Khaleda Zia, saying the court has no jurisdiction to pass any judgment on an appeal for bail in a graft case.

Judge Mohammad Azizul Haq at Metropolitan Sessions Judge's Court made the observation that follows a September 12 ruling in which Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Jalal Ahmed also declined to hear Khaleda's bail petition citing the same reason.

The defence lawyers in their bail petition said the government had filed the case against Khaleda, her younger son Arafat Rahman Koko and 11 other people. Later the case was brought under the Emergency Power Rules (EPR) on September 17 that also curbed the right of an accused to seek bail from any court, they said.
