Postponement of the meeting of the parliamentary inquiry committee: the forensic report provided by the police will be studied – myRepublica

KATHMANDU, July 26: The meeting of the parliamentary commission of inquiry, formed to investigate former finance minister Janardhan Sharma, in Singh Durbar this morning has been postponed. The committee meeting will be held again at 4 p.m. in the afternoon.

At the meeting, committee members are now reviewing the forensic report submitted by the police. In the forensic report handed over by the police, there is also a video of the Ministry of Finance (MoF) CCTV footage.

Previously, the Department of Finance said CCTV footage was only kept for 13 days, then it was automatically deleted and footage from that day was deleted. After that, the parliamentary committee requested the help of the police to recover the images.

Former finance minister Janardan Sharma has been accused of manipulating tax rates by calling unauthorized people to the ministry on the night of May 28, before presenting the budget for the financial year 2022/23 in the House representatives. Sharma resigned as finance minister after the allegations.

As the parliamentary commission of inquiry begins to investigate Sharma, the ministry’s CCTV footage has become of interest to all.
