SAVAR, Bangladesh (AP) - A top court in Bangladesh has asked the government to "immediately" confiscate the property of the owner of a building that collapsed last week.
A two-judge panel of the High Court also asked the central bank on Tuesday to freeze the assets of the owners of the five garment factories in the building. They said the money should be used to pay the salaries and other benefits of the workers.
The order came after police produced the building owner, Mohammed Sohel Rana, and the factory owners in court.
At least 386 people were killed when the illegally constructed 8-story Rana Plaza collapsed on April 24. A total of 3,122 people were employed in the garment factories there.
