Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has urged the UAE to provide amnesty to Amar Bahadur Bam of Darchula, who was sentenced to death by a United Arab Emirates court. Bam has been living behind hars in UAE since 2003.

Bam, a resident of Dhari VDC in far-western Nepal, was convicted of murder for killing an Indian national Sharad Shetty in 2003, and has been languishing in the Al Abira Central Jail in Dubai.

PM Dahal’s secretariat informed that Dahal urged the Ambassador of UAE to Nepal Saeed Hamdan Mohammad Al Naqbi to pardon Bam during a meeting between the Ambassador and PM Dahal at the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers (OPMCM) on Thursday.

Ambassador Naqbi had reached Singha Durbar to invite Nepal to attend the World Future Energy Summit to be held in UAE on January 16, 2017.

PM Dahal expressed his interest to attend the programme. The duo also held discussions on issues pertaining to bilateral interests between Nepal and UAE.
