Kantipur to record statements in SC today

- POST REPORT, Kathmandu

Sep 10, 2014-

Following the court summon in contempt case, publishers and journalists of Kantipur Publications appeared before the Supreme Court on Wednesday. The court is scheduled to record statements on Thursday.

Chairman and Managing Director of the publications Kailash Sirohiya, Director Swastika Sirohiya, Editor-in-Chief of Kantipur daily Sudheer Sharma, and correspondent Ghanshyam Khadka reached the court as per its previous order.

The SC had on August 26 ordered publishers of Kantipur Publications and editorial staff of Kantipur daily to appear in person to explain why they should not be convicted in a contempt of court case. The publications had received the court notice on September 5. Responding to two separate contempt of court cases, a single bench of Justice Gopal Parajuli had issued the summon. In its 11-page initial order, the court has charged the Kantipur daily of running an “institutional mission” to tarnish the image of judiciary.
