Factory disaster film cleared for screening: Bangladesh’s SC

Bangladesh’s Supreme Court on Sunday reversed a decision to ban the release of a film depicting the 2013 Rana Plaza garment factory collapse.

More than 1,100 people were killed in the disaster and the High Court last week halted the film, “Rana Plaza”, over concerns its gruesome images would “negatively portray” the nation’s $25 billion garment industry.

But the Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice S.K. Sinha, overruled the earlier order, Attorney General Mahbubey Alam told AFP.
