Former Bangladesh PM Khaleda Zia sentenced to seven years in Jail in another Corruption Case

AFP
In Bangladesh, a court has sentenced former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia and three others to seven years in prison in another corruption case. She is already serving a jail term since February after being convicted in a case related to embezzlement of funds of an orphanage named after her husband President Ziaur Rahman. 

The latest sentence, comes ahead of general elections in December this year. 

According to the case, Zia and three others abused their power and collected USD 375,000 for her trust from unknown sources. The Zia Charitable Trust graft case was filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission in 2011.

Zia's party has said that the charges for both cases are politically motivated.
