Germany has stood beside the agitating readymade garments workers of Bangladesh, calling for an end to “police suppression” on them.
Peter Fahrenhollz, German ambassador to Bangladesh, tweeted about it today, also calling upon factory owners to give fair wages.
"Police shouldn't suppress striking garment workers," Fahrenhollz wrote.
"It's up to the factory owners to negotiate. Give fair wages and safe working conditions. Establish an accident insurance. Don't hide behind the government," he further wrote.
Germany, an European nation, is currently the second biggest apparel export destination for Bangladesh after the United States and formerly the first.
