KATHMANDU, FEBRUARY 18 : Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has provided his written response in the contempt-of-court case at Supreme Court, today.
The Supreme Court, on January 28, had issued an order seeking written response from the Prime Minister on contempt-of-court case, within a week.
A single bench of Justice Manoj Sharma issued the order to submit the written response explaining all details by the Prime Minister himself within a week after he receives the letter from SC.
Senior advocate Kumar Sharma Acharya and advocate Kanchan Krishna Neupane had filed the case against PM Oli, stating that he was giving views on a case sub-judice in court – dissolution of House of Representatives initiated by the Prime Minister himself – thereby interfering with the judicial work.
Prime Miniter OLi, on December 20, dissolved the House of Representatives, an act that has been termed unconstitutional and undemocratic by many groups. This very move, on his part, caused multiple writ petitions to be filed at the apex court, the hearing on which is going on at the Constitutional bench.
