British Council has temporarily closed its offices in Bangladesh in order to review their security procedures, the organisation announced today.
The international organisation hopes to reopen its offices and resume normal services to the public once new security measures are in place.
On its website it says, “Our offices are temporarily closed to review security procedures.”
“Customer Services will be responding to queries through email, Live Chat and Facebook in the usual office hours. We regret any inconvenience caused,” it said.
Barbara Wickham, Director of British Council Bangladesh said in a press release, “We recognise that people in Bangladesh are increasingly concerned about safety and security in public places. The safety and security of our staff and customers is always our top priority.”
“Therefore we have taken the decision to temporarily close our offices in order to review our security practices,” she added.
During this temporary closure, our Customer Services will be responding to queries through email email@example.com”
