Kathmandu, February 23

National Examination Board has turned down Dr Govinda KC’s request to provide him a copy of Chief Justice Gopal Prasad Parajuli’s School Leaving Certificate. NEB said it could not provide Dr KC copy of Parajuli’s certificate without the latter’s consent.

NEB said it couldn’t provide the information as the constitution had guaranteed every citizen the right to privacy. It, however, said that a copy of Parajuli’s certificate could be provided to the Supreme Court in relation to a case that is sub-judice at the court.

Dr KC and his team had filed an application under Right to Information Act at the Office of the Controller of Examinations seeking a copy of CJ Parajuli’s School Leaving Certificates on February 8. The applicants had demanded to know the CJ’s date of birth recorded in his School Leaving Certificate. They have demanded to know the reason behind the chief justice’s different birth dates recorded in the Office of the Controller of Examinations and the Ministry of Education.

They had pointed out that his birth date mentioned in different academic certificates did not match.

Earlier, Dr KC had filed an application under Right to Information Act at District Administration Office, Kathmandu, seeking information about CJ Parajuli’s citizenship on January 31. Dr KC had also filed an application under Right to Information Act at DAO, Tanahun, on February 4.
