Bangladesh Nationalist Party Chairperson and former prime minister Khaleda Zia has appealed to the nation’s Supreme Court to stay the trial proceedings of the Zia Charitable Trust graft case.

Earlier, the High Court dismissed two revision petitions of Khaleda, seeking a stay on the trial, and paved way for a lower court to continue with the trial.

She filed two separate petitions against the High Court order seeking a stay in the trial proceeding on Wednesday, reports The Daily Star.

The Supreme Court is yet to set a date for the hearing of the petitions.

The BNP chief filed two separate revision petitions with the HC challenging a lower court order that rejected her two applications in the graft case lodged by the ACC on August 8, 2011.

One of the applications was filed for re-cross examination of the investigation officer of the case while the other for scrutinising the case diary.
