About a dozen clothing companies linked to the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh – which collapsed killing more than 1,100 people – have yet to pay a penny into a fund for victims, campaigners claim...Consequently it is facing a shortfall of millions of pounds, depriving thousands of victims of the money they should have received. The fund, backed by the UN’s International Labour Organisation, should be about $30m, but less than $23m has been donated to date, which means that at least 5,000 people eligible for compensation will end up with only 70 per cent of what they are expecting. The amounts being given to individuals will vary depending on their circumstances, such as the number of dependants they have and the wages earned by workers who were killed or injured.
