Contempt case registered against NC presidentA contempt of court case has been registered in the Supreme Court against Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba.
A contempt of court case has been registered in the Supreme Court against Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba.
Advocate Hari Mainali moved the court on Sunday citing the recent decision of the NC Central Working Committee, following the SC verdict on the appointment of Nepal Police inspector general.
The CWC meeting last week had said, “The constitution has accepted the principle of constitutional supremacy and multiparty, democratic republican parliamentary system and separation of powers, clearly enshrining the rights of the executive.
The party feels that the recent decision of the Supreme Court on IGP appointment is an encroachment upon the executive rights of the government.”
Advocate Mainali argues that the NC’s decision is contemptuous of the court’s verdict.
Some of the comments and objections of the party are against the provisions of the constitution, constitutional supremacy, rule of law, theory of separation of powers and against the principle of check and balance, Mainali said in his appeal.
Mainali observed that a responsible party like the Congress had ridiculed the court’s decision with its comments. He argued that the CWC decision contravenes several articles of the Constitution including 1(1), 126, 128 (2),(4), and provisions of the Supreme Court Act-2048 and the Judicial Administration Act -2073. He also demanded stern action against Deuba.
