CIAA grills RCCC functionaries
The Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) Sunday interrogated two former officials of the Royal Commission for Corruption Control (RCCC), a quasi-legal agency operating during the royal regime, over allegations of harassing pro-democracy leaders and misusing government resources.
Former RCCC chairman Bhakta Bahadur Koirala and member Shambhu Khanal appeared before a panel of CIAA commissioners and recorded their statement regarding the allegations.
The anti-corruption agency summoned them on the basis of the report of a panel investigating the RCCC excesses.
The CIAA is learnt to have written letters to other RCCC members summoning for interrogation.
The government has authorised the CIAA to investigate the activities of the RCCC as well as the corruption during King Gyanendra's direct rule
