NRB case verdict postponed till Sunday
The Special Court failed to issue a verdict saying the judges were still scouring through the documents related to the corruption case against Governor of the Nepal Rastra Bank Bijaya Nath Bhattarai and Executive Director Surendra Man Pradhan.A three-member bench of judges Bhoopdhoj Adhikary, Komal Nath Sharma and Cholendra SJB Rana said the judges were still analysing the case.
This is the sixth time the verdict of the case was postponed without any reason even after gathering all necessary evidences and documents. The bench has told the court authority to produce the case on Sunday.Registrar of the Special Court Lekhnath Paudel, however, expressed ignorance over whether the bench would pronounce its verdict on Sunday.
The Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) had filed the corruption case against Bhattarai and Pradhan accusing them of causing a loss of Rs 30 million by terminating the contract signed with the IEF INC. Lloyd Hill Oakton, USA in Association of KPMG, Sri Lanka.
