A Dhaka court has deferred hearing Khaleda Zia's statement in Zia Charitable Trust graft case.
On Thursday, the former prime minister appeared before the court of Dhaka's Third Special Judge Abu Ahmad Jamadar.
The court fixed Jan 12 to conclude hearing Khaleda's defence statement.
The court at Old Dhaka's Baskhibazar is also trying Khaleda for the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption charges.
The defence has petitioned for a fresh deposition of a prosecution witness on Thursday in the case, which is expected to be heard in the afternoon.
In 2008, the Anti Corruption Commission filed the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case against six including Khaleda and her son Tarique Rahman.
In 2011, the anti-corruption watchdog sued the BNP chief and three others for embezzlement of Tk 31.5 million of the Zia Charitable Trust.
