Kathmandu, March 21
The Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority is investigating the allegation of irregularities against Chief Executive Officer of National Reconstruction Authority Sushil Gyewali.
According to CIAA Spokesperson Krishna Hari Pushkar, complainants had lodged plaints against Gyewali alleging that he committed irregularities as CEO of Town Development Fund and National Reconstruction Authority and the anti-graft body had been looking into all those allegations.
Pushkar said the CIAA had been investigating for the last one year the complaints filed against Gyewali alleging that he committed financial, administrative and technical irregularities with the Town Development Fund.
The CIAA Spokesperson also said that the anti-graft body also received new complaints against Gyewali, which charged him of being involved with non-governmental organisations to procure goods for NRA without giving priority to the fast-track process for providing service to the targeted people. “These investigations are in the preliminary phase,” he added.
Gyewali is currently visiting China as a member of Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s entourage. He had served as the CEO of Town Development Fund before joining the NRA.
