NGO Rejoinder

NGO Shipbreaking Platform

NGO Shipbreaking Platform's response to Kabir Steel Limited's statement

...The explanation behind the gathering, the protest and the anger of the locals is that the families of workers who have either been killed or seriously injured in the shipbreaking yards have to fight for the legal compensation to be paid...The yard management claims that the protest had turned violent with people trying to break the gate and to set fire to a fuel tank. The question of whether the protest turned violent before the yard’s security personnel started shooting or whether it was once the yard security resorted to violence, has to be clarified by an independent and impartial police report...The NGO Shipbreaking Platform demands an independent and impartial policy investigation into the shooting and asks the authorities to ensure that the people responsible will be held accountable.
