Why wrong information to court?

Kathmandu june 23-Even as the government on Wednesday told the Supreme Court that it didn’t arrest Naba Raj Subedi, general secretary of the Janamorcha Nepal (People’s Front Nepal), the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) officials Thursday revealed that Subedi has been kept at the Lalitpur District Police Office.

NHRC member Sudeep Pathak who met Subedi at the DPO’s custody this afternoon told reporters that the government’s reply to the court was wrong. “The government statement that Subedi is not in custody is wrong. He has been kept at the Lalitpur DPO,” said Pathak. Two other NHRC members were also with Pathak.

According to Pathak, the Janamorcha leader expressed concern over the lack of rule of law and the systematic persecution of political workers by the royal administration.

Subedi was arrested from his party office at Sundhara, Kathmandu, with hours of his release following a Supreme Court order on June 15. Responding to a court order on Wednesday, the government denied knowledge of Subedi’s whereabouts, claiming that it had not arrested him.
