The owner of the Tazreen Fashion factory that caused 124 deaths with numerous more injured is now free once more after he secured bail and is supposed to be finally released on Sunday or Monday (3 or 4 August 2014). This news was confirmed by the State Minister for Labor Mr Mujibul Hoque Chunnu.
After a delay of more than a year, the infamous owner of Tazreen Mr. Delwar Hossain was finally jailed following a court order to which he surrendered.
After numerous attempts to get a bail, the recent “hunger strike till death” of the workers of Tuba Group (Tuba Group is owned by Delwar Hossain) who have not been paid their 3 months of due wages as well as overtime and festival bonus are alleged to have created an atmosphere where the possibility of negotiating in favor of Delwar Hossain’s bail and possible immunity from law could be forwarded by his relatives who now hold the helm of the group.
The ongoing protest has taken a toll on the workers who are already falling sick. However, they have been getting promises of a relief from this suffocating situation of hunger, grief and restlessness to no avail as yet.
