BGMEA gets six months to raze building
Bangladesh's top apparel business body has six months to pull down its multi-storey office building in which was built nearly two decades ago endangering wetlands in the capital Dhaka.

The 16-storey office building of the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) was built in violation of the Wetlands Protection Act, reports

On Sunday, the Supreme Court's three-member appeals bench led by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha gave the order after hearing a petition by the BGMEA, which sought three years to move their offices and demolish the building.
