A Special Court in Dhaka on Thursday adjourned till August 3 for further cross examination of the complainant in two graft cases against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia and others.
Abu Ahmed Jamadar, the Judge of Dhaka Special Judge Court-3 fixed the new date in presence of former prime minister Khaleda Zia on Thursday for completion of the cross examination of the complainant in response to a time petition filed by defence lawyers.
On Thursday the Court recorded the partial statements of the complainant Harunur Rashid, Deputy Director of Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).
With a view to appear at the specially erected Court on the Alia Madrasha ground near Bakshibazar, the former premier Khaleda reached the Court premises at around 10:15am.
The defence lawyers submitted two petitions before the Court for adjourning the taking cross examination of the complainant of the graft cases as they would file a leave to appeal petition before the Supreme Court.
Earlier, the High Court dismissed the petitions of Khaleda Zia for annulling the deposition of the complainant which was recorded in her absence. The Court did not respond to the prayers of the defence lawyers.
BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia has refrained from showing up before the Court on 56 out of 63 dates for hearing in both the graft cases.
