Khaleda to remain behind bars

SC freezes HC bail to Khaleda (

The Supreme Court Thursday overturned the High Court rule and froze the bail to former prime minister Khaleda Zia in GATCO corruption case.

A seven-strong full bench of the Appellate Division led by chief justice M Ruhul Amin also ruled that the proceedings of the graft case could go on in the trial court against the BNP chairperson.

The High Court Sunday awarded bail to Khaleda but a day later the government and the Anticorruption Commission sought Supreme Court freezes on the High Court order and the stay on GATCO corruption case proceedings.
