Special Court defers verdict on suspended NRB guv’s case
The Special Court today deferred the verdict on the case of suspended Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB) governor Bijay Nath Bhattarai.
A bench of Special Court chairman Dhup Dhoj Adhikari and members Komal Nath Sharma and Cholendra SJB Rana postponed the verdict until December 15.
The court was to announce its verdict on this high profile corruption case today.
Bhattarai and another senior NRB official, Surendra Man Pradhan, have been accused of embezzling Rs 195.319 million that Nepal had received in foreign aid for financial sector reforms.
The Commission for Investigation for Abuse of Authority (CIAA) had filed cases against Bhattarai and co-accused Pradhan in January this year.
