BGMEA wants one year more to shift its headquarters

Bangladesh Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) wants one-year more time to shift its headquarter from existing BGMEA Bhaban from Hatirjheel. The BGMEA authority filed a plea on March 5 with the department concerned of the Supreme Court seeking one-year time. On April 8 in 2017, the Supreme Court gave a 6 months’ time to demolish the building of BGMEA. During that time, the court said it was the last time. In 2011, the High Court ordered demolition of the 16-storey building as it was constructed in defiance of relevant laws, calling it a “cancer” in the lake. BGMEA later filed a leave to appeal petition with the Appellate Division against the High Court judgment, but the apex court on June 2, 2016, dismissed the plea as well as asked the RMG producers to demolish its headquarter at once and at its own cost. The Supreme Court (SC) on 5th March in 2017 rejected a petition seeking review of its judgment that upheld a High Court (HC) order for demolishing the building. On March 12 in 2017, the Appellate Division granted BGMEA six months to demolish its complex located in Hatirjheel-Begunbari Lake, rejecting a plea of the RMG producers’ seeking three years’ time.
