The Bangladesh government has extended BNP Chairperson and former prime minister Khaleda Zia’s prison-term suspension by six months in two cases over corruption.

The home ministry announced the executive order on Tuesday following an appeal from her family.

Khaleda’s previous suspended sentence is scheduled to end on Sept 24. The government freed her on Mar 25 for six months following the family’s petition amid the coronavirus pandemic on condition of receiving treatment at home.
