High Court has stayed trial proceedings against Awami League President Sheikh
Hasina for three months in the MiG-29 purchase case.
The case was filed during
the BNP-led four-party alliance rule.
The court also issued a rule for the government, Anti-Corruption Commission and
trial court to explain within three weeks why framing charges against Hasina in
her absence should not be declared illegal.
Sheikh Hasina’s lawyer Shafique Ahmed said his client had earlier been granted
bail in the fighter purchase case.
Matiur Rahman Chowdhury has the details.
