Transparency International –Nepal (TI-Nepal) has drawn its attention to amendment bills related to Corruption Control and Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority which were under clause-wise discussion after being tabled at the parliament.

The organization has demanded clear arrangement not to include the decision of any level or agency targeted to protect interests of individual or special group in the 'policy decision', stated a press release issued by TI Nepal Chairperson Padmini Pradhananga today.

Chairperson Pradhananga said the provision of 'maximum period to initiate law proceeding against corruption charges from the date of knowing would lead to dismissal of large corruption cases that are being kept in parking lot.

Such provisions would help big fishes to get liberated from the corruption cases, she said, drawing attention of the authorities concerned to the loopholes in the amendment bill.

Nepal was the state party of the United Nations Convention on Corruption Control and it has explicitly stated to bring the corrupt of the private sector to law treating it as a criminal case. She drew attention of the authorities concerned to introduce clear legal provisions and make regulatory agencies responsible.

The amended bill should not be framed in a way to liberate big fishes who have been enjoying state of impunity despite presence of anti-graft agencies and legal arrangements, TI-Nepal said. ---
