BGMEA office demolition: Order on time extension plea April 2
The Supreme Court has ordered the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) to revise and resubmit its undertaking over a time extension for demolishing its headquarters in the Hatirjheel area of Dhaka. The 15-storey BGMEA Bhaban stands on a critical spot in the capital, blocking the flow of water between Hatirjheel lake and Begunbari canal, and has been described by the Supreme Court as “a cancer in the Hatirjheel project”. On March 25 the association sought a year’s extension to the latest deadline to demolish the building. On Tuesday, the court ordered the association to submit an undertaking which is supposed to include a condition that the BGMEA will not seek another time extension after the one currently applied for expires.

On Wednesday, the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain gave the BGMEA until April 2 to revise and resubmit its undertaking, after highlighting errors in the undertaking submitted by the BGMEA legal team of senior lawyer Kamrul Hauqe Siddiqi and advocate Imtiaz Moinul Islam. The High Court first ordered the BGMEA to move forward with demolition work on April 3, 2011. The association filed a leave to appeal against the verdict which was later dismissed by the top court.

In June 2016, the Appellate Division upheld the High Court verdict ordering the demolition of the structure and told the BGMEA to bear the cost of demolition. On March 12,2017, the Supreme Court accepted a BGMEA appeal for an extension and gave the association six more months, until September 11. This article was first published on banglatribune.com
