The apex court said it will not extend the deadline for relocating the BGMEA building after six months.

In the order, the court said it gave seven months’ time to the BGMEA from September 12, which means that six months and four days are left for the relocation from today, Barrister Imtiaz Moinul Islam, a lawyer for BGMEA, told The Daily Star.    

After hearing a petition filed by BGMEA seeking one year time for relocating its building, a five-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Justice Md Abdul Wahhab Miah passed the order.

On August 23, the garment makers' platform appealed to the court for the extension of the deadline, said Siddiqur Rahman, president of the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association.

Wahhab Miah is discharging the duties of the chief justice in absence of Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha at present.
