Petition filed against constitutional appointments at SC

2021 Jul 19, 22:41, Kathmandu
The Supreme Court has issued an interim order for an investigation to be conducted against former minister Krishna Gopal Shrestha who has been accused of helping in the release of a landlord who had been accused of racial discrimination.

A supplementary petition has been lodged at the Supreme Court (SC) demanding to scrap the appointments made in the constitutional bodies at the recommendation of the Constitutional Council issuing ordinance by the Oli administration.

Advocate Om Prakash Aryal registered the supplementary petition on Monday naming the Office of the President, Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers and others as the defendants seeking to remove those appointed through the ordinances on different dates.

The supplementary petition claims that a total of 52 appointments in different constitutional bodies are unlawful and unconstitutional. Likewise, the petition states that the recommendation process itself was unconstitutional.

Advocate Aryal had also lodged the first writ petition on December 16, 2020.
