Call for compensating Rana Plaza's missing workers

Call for compensating Rana Plaza's missing workers

Bangladesh Garment Sramik Sanghati (BGSS) yesterday urged the government to declare dead the 183 missing workers from the Rana Plaza collapse, whose bodies could not be identified even after two stages of DNA sampling.
“Their families can then become eligible for compensation,” Taslima Akhter, convener of BGSS, said at a press conference.
The families of missing workers have received very little compensation, as the authorities have only compensated those whose bodies were found or identified in the DNA sampling, she said.
The actual number of missing workers, however, could be more than 183 as it was not possible for BGSS to form a more comprehensive list with its limited resources, she added.
