Eight-member Appellate Division, led by Chief Justice Obaidul Hasan passed a status quo order on the transfer of shares of the Italian-Thai company to the Chinese company as per the Dhaka Elevated Expressway agreement. Hence, the construction of the expressway got stuck.

Appellate Division passed the order on Thursday (May 16).

Meanwhile, the court mentioned also that there is no problem if the work is stopped for few more days.
