‘Home Ministry lied’-SC
Kathmandu, June 25 - Supreme Court Friday said the Home Ministry lied to it regarding Subedi's detention Ordering authorities to release the General Secretary of People's Front Nepal, Nawaraj Subedi. he was released in the presence of the court Registrar Dr Ram Krishna Timalsena. The court found Subedi's detention unlawful.
"The Home Ministry itself concealed the information [of Subedi's arrest] as the ministry, which receives copies of such arrests from its subordinate offices, did not mention Subedi 's arrest in its reply to the court," said Justices Anupraj Sharma and Rajendra Kumar Bhandari while passing the written order.
the Ministry had maintained that Subedi's arrest was not in its knowledge. But the National Human Rights Commission found him in Lalitpur Police Office on Thursday. Subedi was re-arrested on June 15, hours after he was released through a Supreme Court order. He was first arrested on May 14.
The justices said they would speak more about the "ill-intention" of the authorities regarding the deception involved in relation to court orders, or making court orders ineffective, while preparing the full text of the judgment later .
