BGMEA seeks one more year to demolish its building
The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) authorities have requested an additional one year from the Appellate Division to demolish its headquarters in Hatirjheel, Dhaka. A source from the Supreme Court confirmed the matter on Saturday (March 10). He said, the BGMEA appealed to the relevant branch of the Appellate Division on March 5 for an extension of one year to take down the building. The Appellate Division gave BGMEA seven months for the work to be completed as of April 8 last year. The court said in its order: “This is the last chance. No extra time will be granted [to BGMEA in this regard].” On March 5 last year, the Appellate Division rejected the review petition for the verdict for the demolition project. At that time, BGMEA authorities had appealed for a period of three years. Then, on March 12 of the same year, the Appellate Division rejected the appeal and gave them six months’ time instead. Earlier, on April 3, 2011, the High Court ordered the BGMEA to move forward with demolition work. Later, BGMEA authorities filed a leave to appeal against the court verdict. Dismissing the leave to appeal, the Appellate Division declared in favour of the verdict. According to the full verdict of the Appellate Division, the BGMEA has been ordered to demolish the 15-storey building named “BGMEA Complex” which stands on a critical spot in the capital, blocking the connection between two large water bodies – Hatirjheel lake and Begunbari canal. If BGMEA would fail to follow through, Rajuk was instructed to take over the work within 90 days of receiving the copy of the verdict. In this case, they would get the cost of the demolition from BGMEA. This article was first published on banglatribune.com
