Stigmatising Liberation War case

Indictment hearing on October 17


A court in the capital on Tuesday set October 17 for holding hearing on charge framing in a case against BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia for stigmatizing War of Liberation, reports BSS.

Tuesday was fixed for holding hearing on the matter, but the defence pleaded to allow them time in the case. Accepting the defence plea, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Asaduzzaman Noor then reset the date. Jananetri Parishad president AB Siddiqui filed another defamation case on November 3, 2016, against Khaleda Zia and her late husband Ziaur Rahman for stigmatizing War of Liberation by rehabilitating anti-Liberation War elements. The BNP chairperson is now in bail in the case.
