Kathmandu, Aug 13: CPN (UML) Chairperson KP Sharma Oli has demanded the formation of a high level judicial commission to investigate the 100 kg gold smuggling case.
The investigation required a judicial commission as it risks failure to reach the root in the scam and a decision taken based on majority through a parliamentary committee, said the former Prime Minister at a press conference organised here today in the party office.
It was not possible for such a big amount of gold smuggling to take place without the involvement of people in higher places, and the smuggling still continued, he claimed.
In another context, Chair Oli blamed that the government arrested lawmaker Sunil Sharma in a fake academic certificate case in its attempt to lessen the protest against it. The UML has been obstructing the parliament demanding the formation of a high-level commission to investigation the gold smuggling.
