The Bangladesh Supreme Court on December 12 rejected the bail petition of former Prime Minister and Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) chief Khaleda Zia in a corruption case.

A six-member bench of the Appellate Division of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud rejected 74-year-old Zia’s appeal against a High Court order that turned down her bail plea in the Zia Charitable Trust corruption case.

The court ordered the authorities to swiftly take measures to ensure that Zia gets ‘advanced treatment’ in line with the recommendations of a medical board at the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University as her health has massively deteriorated over the months.
