Taskforce meeting underway to finalize ToR

A meeting of the taskforce formed to finalize the terms of reference of the parliamentary probe committee on the issues of cooperative fund embezzlement is underway at the Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs.

The committee members also held discussions on Thursday to finalize the ToR but the meeting ended inconclusively.

The main opposition Nepali Congress has been obstructing the meeting of both houses demanding the formation of a parliamentary committee for conducting an impartial investigation into the alleged involvement of Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Rabi Lamichhane in the cooperative fraud case.

An understanding was reached on May 18 between the ruling parties and the opposition NC to form the probe committee.

Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs, Padam Giri, CPN-UML Chief Whip Mahesh Bartaula, NC leaders Gyanendra Bahadur Karki and Jeevan Pariyar and Shishir Khanal of the Rastriya Swatantra Party are in the task force.
