Salil Tripathi of Institute for Human Rights & Business reflects on the importance of fully compensating victims and calls for immediate action in Bangladesh

Nearly two years after the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh...most victims’ families are still waiting for full compensation for their losses...with less than three weeks left before the second anniversary of the tragedy, a major international campaign is underway to fill the significant remaining gap in compensation funds the international community and Bangladeshi companies and government had agreed should be raised but has thus far failed to fully deliver...all parties involved should reflect on the importance of fully compensating victims and recognize the need for action now. Over a thousand people lost their lives at Rana Plaza two years ago; many more are suffering from permanent disabilities. Preventing such accidents should be a priority; so should healing the workers.
