HC issues rule on setting up medical waste refineries
The High Court on Sunday issued a rule asking concerned authorities to show causes why they should not be directed to set up waste refineries at medical institutions and form waste management bodies at every administrative division in the country. The bench of Justice Md Moinul Islam Chowdhury and Justice Md Ashraful Kamal issued the rule after the initial hearing of a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by Al-Amin, a journalist. The litigation was lodged with the High Court citing a report on keeping medical waste in open space published in an English daily newspaper. Lawyer Syed Mahidul Kabir moved the writ while Deputy Attorney General Motahar Hossain Sazu appeared for the state in the court. Forest and environment secretary, health secretary, home secretary, Department of Environment director general (DG), Directorate General of Health Services DG and Bangladesh Private Clinic and Diagnostic Owners' Association secretary general have been made respondents to the rule. The court also asked the respondents to submit a progress report on July 22 on forming waste management authority while it fixed July 26 for further hearing. Talking to reporters, Mahidul said the court issued directives along with the rule asking concerned authorities why they should not be directed to set up waste refineries at medical institutions as per the Environment Conservation Rules, 1997.
