Kathmandu, January 31

The recently revived youth wing of Unified CPN-Maoist Young Communist League today demanded investigation into the property of Lokman Singh Karki, chief of the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority.

Organising a press meet here today, YCL Chairman RC Sharma demanded investigation into the property of all those found guilty of cracking down on demonstrators of the 2006 People’s Movement, including the chief commissioner of the constitutional anti-graft body.

“YCL is seriously concerned because the person found guilty by the Rayamajhi Commission is heading the anti-corruption body, who we suspect still has relations with corrupt officials,” Sharma said at the press conference.

He added that the Rayamajhi Commission had convicted Karki of suppressing the People’s Movement of 2006 and demanded stern action against those convicted by the Mallik Commission as well. Sharma further challenged CIAA to prove the corruption charges against United CPN-Maoist leaders.

YCL General Secretary Ram Prasad Sapkota demanded that conflict era cases be settled through Truth and Reconciliation Commission as per the Comprehensive Peace Accord.

“We also appeal the courts to stop reviving the conflict era cases and respect CPA,” Sapkota said. He also said YCL would begin a campaign to register cases against then state authorities throughout the country if CPA was violated.

He said YCL had decided to prepare a list of those involved in corruption and black-marketing of essential supplies and submit it to the concerned authorities for necessary action.

He added that the youth wing would mobilise as many as 14,000 youths to 14 earthquake-affected districts to support reconstruction efforts.
