A Bangladesh court on Thursday handed a seven-year jail term to the son of main opposition leader Khaleda Zia in a case of money laundering, scrapping an acquittal by a lower court, the Bangladesh local media reports.

Tarique Rahman, 51, the political heir apparent to the former prime minister, was also fined 200 million taka ($2.5 million), said Khurshid Alam Khan, a lawyer for the Anti-Corruption Commission, which had appealed against the previous judgment.
