Bangladeshi High Court orders seizure of assets following factory collapse

The collapse occurred one day after inspectors reportedly found cracks in the building

In the wake of a deadly factory collapse in Bangladesh, that country’s High Court ordered the seizure of assets belonging to several individuals who owned property in the ill-fated complex.

The eight-story Rana Plaza building collapsed on April 24, killing at least 400 people and leaving more than 2,400 others temporarily trapped under the debris, Bloomberg reports. On Tuesday, the High Court ordered officials to seize the assets of Mohammed Sohel Rana, who owned the Rana Plaza, along with those of four other individuals whose garment factories are located in the complex.
