Release Bangladesh's main Opposition Leader Khaleda Zia

This petition had 46 supporters

Bangladesh's main opposition leader Begum Khaleda Zia was imprisoned for 5 years by a special Dhaka court on 8th February 2018 in a government-plotted false and fabricated graft case. The 3-times former Prime Minister, Khaleda Zia, was taken to the prison straightway just after the verdict was pronounced. The regime concocted the case of Zia Orphanage Trust although Khaleda Zia, Chairperson of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), was not involved with the Trust at all. Most importantly the $250,000 equivalent fund of the trust, named in her husband President Ziaur Rahman who declared independence of Bangladesh in 1971, was a grant from the Emir of Kuwait. It is still in the bank account of the trust and the amount became triple with interest over the period. We therefore urge the United Nations and the international community to use their legitimate constant pressure on the illegitimate regime in Bangladesh for immediate release of Khaleda Zia.
