Both the areas are considered to be critical to the ecology

The High Court on Monday directed the authorities concerned to respect the environment when constructing structures at Laboni and Sugandha points of Cox’s Bazar, according to media reports.

Both the areas are considered to be critical to the ecology.

The High Court bench of Justice Moyeenul Islam Chowdhury and Justice Md Ashraful Kamal issued the directive after hearing a petition.

The petition was filed by the Bangladesh Environmental Lawyers’ Association (BELA) on November 13, challenging the legality of Cox’s Bazar Beach Management’s decision to construct the structures.

Minhazul Haque Chowdhury represented the petitioner.

The court also issued a rule asking why the decision by Cox’s Bazar Beach Management should not be declared illegal.

According to the petition, Cox’s Bazar Beach Management had decided to build “night bazars” at Laboni and Sugandha points, as well as at Inani Beach, during a meeting on June 13.

The setting up of the night bazars was a violation of environmental protection laws, the writ added.
