CIAA summons Tulsi Giri, 10 others

The Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) has summoned 11 former royalist functionaries including the vice chairman of erstwhile royal government, Dr. Tulsi Giri, for interrogation on charges of corruption.
CIAA summoned Giri along with nine then ministers including Radha Krishna Mainali, Ramesh Nath Pandey, Madhukar Shumsher JB Rana, Durga Shrestha, Buddhi Raj Bajracharya, Badri Prasad Mandal, Ram Narayan Shrestha and then regional administrator Rabindra Chakrabarti.
The CIAA has asked all 11 people to appear before its panel within week to record their statement.
The CIAA has been authorised by the government to implement the report of the Rayamajhi Commission which has indicted them in suppression of the Jana Andolan-II and misuse of funds.
The government has handed over the responsibility of implementing the report of the probe commission led by former Justice of the Supreme Court Krishna Jung Rayamajhi. The report has recommended action against 202 persons for their role in suppressing the April uprising.
The CIAA has already summoned some ministers of the then royal cabinet including then home ministers Kamal Thapa and Dan Bahadur Shahi, then minister for information and communication Tanka Dhakal, state minister Shrish Shumsher JB Rana and then Chief of the Army Staff, Pyar Jung Thapa, in this connection.
