Two Courts in Bangladesh issued warrants on Thursday against Bangladesh’s Opposition leader and former premier 72 year old Khaleda Zia. Courts issued the arrest warrants following her failure to attend court hearings in graft and defamation cases.
She is currently in London on a private tour. The first warrant was issued by Dhaka Metropolitan magistrate Nur Nabi over a case accusing her of undermining the country’s map and national flag. The second warrant was issued by Dhaka’s Fifth Special Judge’s Court as she evaded appearance in a corruption case, reports say.
