Md. Sohel Miazi and others vs. Bangladesh and others [‘Cox’s Bazar Hill Clearing’ Case]

Writ Petition No. 5207 of 2007

High Court Division of the Supreme Court of Bangladesh

BLAST made an application to the High Court to be added as a party in a writ petition challenging hill-cutting and clearing of jungles in Cox’s Bazar for the purpose of developing a housing project for government officials. The petitioners had argued that the project would degrade the environment and ecological balance of the area.

Order: BLAST was added as a party on 06.09.2007. Considering BLAST’S expertise, the Court noted that BLAST may render such assistance as would enable the Court to arrive at a just and proper decision.

Pending hearing
