The Supreme Court on Sunday gave six-month time to Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) to demolish its building located at Begunbari canal and Hatirjheel Lake in the capital.
A three-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha passed the order on Sunday morning.
On March 5, the Supreme Court (SC) dismissed a petition seeking review of its judgement.
The High Court (HC) verdict ordered the government to demolish the building within three months, saying it was built through forgery and illegally.
Later, the Appellate Division stayed the HC judgement following a BGMEA petition.
The building’s foundation was laid in 1998 by the then prime minister Sheikh Hasina and it was opened in 2006 by the then premier Khaleda Zia.
