Often termed as the “Butcher of Bangladeshi Garment Workers” the infamous Delowar Hossain extended his bail for another 6 months after the High Court granted his plea which was made on 14 September 2014.
Even after huge uproars by rights organizations across Bangladesh and the wider global labor right activists and sympathizers, Delowar Hossain scots free with the influence exercised of BGMEA behind him and the support of his own financial capability time and again since the Tazreen Fire, and many consider that he is showing that same strength behind the scenes where he claims to be broke only to refuse workers their proper payments and reemployment.
Delowar is now again a free man, even though 125 workers lost their lives and several hundred injured workers live a painful and traumatic life since the inferno. The impunity Garment Owners enjoy in Bangladesh is still astonishing. Increasingly reckless and spoiled, the owners of dangerous factories and/or factories with inhuman working conditions are now taking attempts to threaten and subdue worker rights groups, organizers and sympathizers. With Delowar Hossain living a free life, justice can be seen imprisoned behind bars.
