Lawyers’ concern

Lawyers on Thursday submitted a memorandum to the Prime Minister’s Office and Cabinet appealing to the government not to authorise the mobile citizenship distribution teams to give away naturalised citizenship certificates. The lawyers claimed that it is the authority of the Home Ministry to distribute the naturalised citizenship certificates as per the Interim Constitution 2007 and Nepal Citizenship Act, 2006 and that any subordinate body under the Ministry cannot exercise the authority. “We have submitted the memorandum along with the signatures of 500 lawyers,” central committee member of the Nepal Bar Association Tika Ram Bhattarai said on Friday.
