A legal notice has been served on BGMEA President Siddiqur Rahman requesting him to withdraw a petition filed with the Supreme Court seeking a one-year time for demolishing its building illegally constructed in the middle of Hatirjheel canal.
Supreme Court lawyer Advocate Manzill Murshid served the notice asking the of President of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) to withdraw their petition in three days.
If the BGMEA president does not withdraw the petition in three days, a contempt of court petition will be moved against him, the lawyer mentioned in the legal notice.
Manzill Murshid, in the notice, said that BGMEA president on April 2 last year submitted an undertaking to the Supreme Court that they would not seek more time from this court for demolishing the BGMEA building.
The BGMEA back then also sought one-year time from the Supreme Court for knocking down the building.
Following their petition, the Supreme Court on April 2, last year gave them a year’s time to shift its offices and asked BGMEA to demolish the building after one year, Manzill said.
However, the BGMEA president submitted another petition to the Supreme Court on April 11 this year seeking one-year time again, which is a violation of the Supreme Court, the lawyer added.
