  NC flays Maoists for opposing bills on money laundering  
 

REPUBLICA

KATHMANDU, Feb 15: The main opposition Nepali Congress (NC) has criticized the ruling UCPN (Maoist) for opposing the bills related to money laundering in parliament.

Lawmakers from the Maoist hardline faction have been opposing the bill on mutual legal assistance, bill on curbing organized crime and bill on extradition, claiming that some of the provisions in the bills are not in the national interest.

A parliamentary party meeting of NC on Wednesday said it is objectionable that voices have been raised against the bills by the party that leads the government.

The meeting demanded that the bills be endorsed with minor changes and said the Maoists would be held responsible if the bills are not endorsed on time.

The NC came down heavily on Maoist lawmaker Amrita Thapa Magar, who is also the chairman of a committee on drafting amendment to the Constituent Assembly (CA) regulations, for not calling the committee meeting.

“Amendment to the CA regulations has been delayed as the chairman hasn´t called the committee meeting,” reads the press statement issued by NC.

The meeting concluded that the committee chairman has obstructed the constitution drafting process by not calling the committee meeting.

NC has also condemned recent remarks by some incumbent ministers against the territorial integrity of the country.

NC reiterated that the Maoists must implement the seven-point agreement between the political parties in letter and spirit to expedite constitution writing and the peace process.

The meeting also urged the government to ensure smooth supply of petroleum products across the country.
