  Kathmandu, Nepal      August 01 2018


Kathmandu, Nepal: Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee has waited a probe report regarding the controversies surrounded over the school level certificate of the Chief Justice Nominee Drrpak Raj Joshi. 

As a joint team of the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) and the Supreme Court Secretariat is scheduled to visit Bijay Memorial School today, where Joshee had studied, to resolve the controversy surrounding his education certificate, Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee has decided to wait the report of the joint team. 

Likewise, Chief Justice Nominee Joshee called on Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli last night at former’s official residence Baluwatar. 

It is said that the duo had met regarding the issue of early resolution of the controversy surrounding his hearing by the Parliamentary Hearing Committee. Earlier, Prime Minister Oli had suggested Joshi to resign before making decision from the Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee. 

The lawmakers in the Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee have divided over the issue of endorsement of Joshee’s name as the Chief Justice. As lawmakers of the government head Nepal Communist Party (NCP) have stood against of the idea to endorse his name as the Chief Justice, it is likely that his name would not be endorsed. NCP lawmakers have majority strength in the Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee.
