BGMEA building: To be or not to be?

Dhaka, Mar 19 ( The High Court is likely to declare final judgment Tuesday on demolition of Bangladesh Garments Manufacturers and Exporters' Association (BGMEA) building, constructed illegally Hatirjheel Lake in the capital, sources said.

A bench of the High Court had pronounced the judgment earlier in 2011, that declared construction of the 16-storey high rise building illegal and as such ordered its demolition.

The High Court bench comprising Justice AHM Shamsuddin Chowdhury and Justice Sheikh Md Zakir Hossain passed the judgment after hearing its earlier suo moto rule issued in October, 2010.

The rule was issued by another High Court bench on its own motion when a Supreme Court lawyer DHM Muniruddin placed a newspaper report on illegality of the BGMEA building before the court.

However, a day after the High Court judgment the Appellate Division of the SC on April 5 stayed the judgment following a petition filed by BGMEA president seeking permission to appeal against the judgment.

When someone builds something

When someone builds something new, he must take into consideration many technical procedures to have a stable and consolidated building. Even though these modern aspects are important, someone shouldn't be concerned only about them. For example, outdoor lighting fixtures from SC are also important for a building, especially if it is a massive one.

Building without all the legal matters taken care of is very risky business, something Bangladesh Garments Manufacturers and Exporters' Association should've thought of before. Giving the circumstances, all anyone can do is hope that they were properly represented in court, by a Real Estate Attorney in Boston MA or maybe someone from a city close by. A good representative is, after all, their only hope.
