The Supreme Court has deferred to May 19 the hearing of a petition filed by Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh, a platform of European apparel buyers to improve safety standards in the apparel sector.

A four-member Appellate Division bench, headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain on Monday also ordered both parties — the government and Accord — to negotiate their terms and conditions within this time.

The orders were given after the court heard the appeal filed by Accord challenging a High Court order.

Accord's lawyers said the Supreme Court order had also extended the platform’s tenure in Bangladesh till May 19.
