KATHMANDU: The Supreme Court (SC) is conducting a hearing on the writ petition against Rastriya Swatantra Party Chairman Rabi Lamichhane on the passport dispute.

Yuvraj Safal filed a writ in the Supreme Court on Sunday afternoon.

Earlier, Safal resubmitted the writ making minor procedural corrections after the SC demurred to take any action instantly.

“The writ registered on Monday will be heard for the first time today.” Bimal Paudel, the Spokesperson of the Supreme Court, said.

On March 20, Attorney General Dinmani Pokharel decided not to file a case against Lamichhane for misuse of his passport.

Before that, District Public Prosecutor’s Office Kathmandu, and High Public Prosecutor’s Office Patan had submitted a report to the Attorney General’s Office that there was no need to prosecute Lamichhane.

On the day Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ took the vote of confidence, Attorney General Pokharel decided not to prosecute Lamichhane.

RSP chairman Lamichhane had taken a Nepali passport despite having an American passport, and a complaint was lodged with the Ministry of Home Affairs to investigate and prosecute him.
