The High Court yesterday directed the government to form an inter-ministerial committee to investigate the monopoly of 10 recruiting agencies, which had been engaged in labour recruitment from Bangladesh to Malaysia, and submit the probe report in six months.
The HC bench of Justice Moyeenul Islam Chowdhury and Justice Md Ashraful Kamal also issued a rule, asking four ministries and other bodies concerned to explain why they failed to prevent formation and operation of the recruitment agencies’ monopoly.
The court also asked the authorities concerned why they should not be ordered to take action against the proprietors and the managing partners of the syndicate of 10 recruitment agencies and compensate the 10 petitioners.
