KATHMANDU: Following widespread criticism for rejecting the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) against the recommendation of Constitution Council to appoint controversial Lokman Singh Karki as the head of the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) the Supreme Court on Friday ordered to register the case.
Acting upon a writ petition filed by Advocate Om Prakash Aryal, a single bench of justice Ram Kumar Prasad Sah issued the order that allows the registration of the writ. Justice Sah made this decision after primary hearing on an application registered against the return of earlier writ.
SC Registrar Lohit Chandra Shah had earlier asked Aryal to come up with more documents and complete the due process before registering writ on Karki’s recommendation.
In the writ, the advocate has named Office of the President, Office of the Council of Ministers, Karki and the CIAA as the defendants.
Despite much hue and cry of the civil society and various professional organizations the Constitutional Council recommended Karki for the top post of the anti-graft body. Karki has been convicted for suppressing the people’s movement of 2006 at the capacity of chief secretary of the direct rule of deposed King Gyanendra.
