Nepal slams climber’s ‘illegal’ call from top of Mount Everest


A mountaineer is reportedly under fire from the Nepalese government for his “illegal” call from the top of Mount Everest.

British climber Daniel Hughes called the BBC for a live video interview from the summit of the world’s tallest mountain on Sunday, AFP reports.
“This is the world’s first live video call — never been done before — from the rooftop of the world,” Hughes said. Hughes used his smartphone to provide video for the call.
But the Nepalese government says Hughes’ interview broke the law because Hughes did not seek the government’s permission for his broadcast, AFP reports.
“Even the tourism ministry has to seek permission from the communication ministry to film, broadcast or conduct media related events on Everest,” said Purnachandra Bhattarai, joint secretary of Nepal’s tourism ministry.
Hughes climbed the 29,029-foot peak to raise money for a Britain-based charity, according to AFP.
Nepal is investigating Hughes’ trekking agency as a result of the incident, AFP reports.
