SC Puts Off Hearing on Rayamajhi Commission Report

The Supreme Court has put off the final hearing on a case demanding the government implement the report of Rayamajhi Commission on suppression of last year’s people’s movement. The court had earlier scheduled to hear the case on Sunday.
The weekly cause list of the court published on Friday has deferred the final hearing on the case. The apex court, however, has not set another date for the final hearing.
"I am surprised by the deferral despite the court had scheduled the final hearing for Sunday," advocate Chandra Kanta Gyawali, who had filed the writ petition, said. "This is not reasonable as the defendants have already submitted their explanations," Gyawali added. He had filed the petition demanding court order to the government to implement the report and to make it public.
Spokesperson for the Supreme Court Durga Prasad Dawadi said the deferral happened just because of technical reasons. "The next hearing date will be fixed soon as the Supreme Court does not have any mal-intention to defer the case," Dawadi added.
