At 7:30 AM today, 26 June 2013, cracks were discovered by inspectors across Razzak Plaza housing garment factories such as Juvian Sweaters, Pacific Blue (Jeans Wear) Ltd., and Al Muslim Garments on its 4th till 8th floors. It is the workplace for almost 6000 workers, some of whom were involved in the rescue effort.
Since the inspectors arrived early today, the factory have been declared to be closed. No announcement of payment during this closure period reached the workers as of yet, however there is a wide-spread belief that if the factory remains closed today then this day will be made up on the next Friday (Friday is a weekend for Bangladesh).
The Razzak Plaza owners are pressing on the Garment factory Owners to remove their factories from the building, below the 4th floor there is a buzzing market of all forms of electronics and fast food items. Our sources tell us that the cracks were there since a couple of months before Rana Plaza collapsed.
Any further update will be reported at the earliest.
