The appellate division of the supreme court has scheduled a final order on Khaleda Zia's bail on May 15.

Zia has been sentenced a five-year imprisonment on charges of misappropriating $252,000 from the Zia orphanage trust. Her bail could decide the fate of her party at the national election due in less than a year. 

Zia’s defence counsels challenged the government lawyers that there is not another case where a high court’s discretion to grant bail has been intervened in by the supreme court.

All eyes now await the order of the supreme court next week.

The appellate division of the supreme court heard the arguments of both sides on Wednesday.
