Complete all works of Savar tannery estate in 4 weeks: HC

The High Court (HC) on Thursday ordered the authorities concerned to complete all infrastructural works, including setting up of Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP), at Savar tannery estate within four weeks.

An HC bench of Justice Syed Refaat Ahmed and Justice Md Salim passed the order following a plea filed by the Bangladesh Environmental Lawyers Association (BELA).

The court also asked the authorities concerned to take necessary steps to prevent mixing of solid wastes with liquid wastes.

Syeda Rizwana Hasan moved for BELA while lawyer Rois Uddin stood for the Industries Ministry.

Earlier in 2001, the High Court ordered the tannery owners to relocate their tannery units from Hazaribagh to Savar to prevent environment pollution.

The government extended several times the relocation deadline following requests from the Bangladesh Small and Cottage Industries Corporation (BSCIC), the implementing agency of the tannery estate project

On March 6 this year, the High Court directed the government to shut down the Hazaribagh tanneries and disconnect all of their utility services, including gas line, power and water immediately, as they missed several deadlines to relocate their factories to the Savar Tannery Estate.unb.
