NEPAL SUS­PENDS ANTI-COR­RUP­TION CHIEF

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KATH­MANDU: The head of Nepal’s an­ti­cor­rup­tion com­mis­sion has been sus­pended after law­mak­ers ac­cused him of abus­ing his po­si­tion and lodged a mo­tion to im­peach him, a par­lia­ment spokesman said yes­ter­day. Lok­man Singh Karki has headed the Com­mis­sion for the In­ves­ti­ga­tion of Abuse of Au­thor­ity (CIAA) since 2013 and was a con­tro­ver­sial ap­point­ment from the start be­cause he had him­self been the sub­ject of cor­rup­tion in­quiries, al­though he has never been con­victed. – AFP
