The top court deferred a hearing on the petition to Dec 5.
A six-member bench of the Appellate Division, led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, was scheduled to hear the petition on Thursday.
Khaleda was represented by lawyers Khandaker Mahbub Hossain, Moudud Ahmed, Zainul Abedin, Mahbub Uddin Khokon and Kayser Kamal.
The High Court on July 31 rejected Khaleda’s bail petition in the case, prompting her lawyers to rush to the Appellate Division for a remedy.
Oct 29 last year, a special court in Dhaka sentenced Khaleda to seven years in prison in the case dubbed “false” by the BNP.
Earlier, the government formed a board with doctors from the BSMMU to examine Khaleda's health.
Khaleda has been in prison since February last year serving a total of 17 years in jail in the Zia Orphanage and Zia Charitable Trust corruption cases.
