Rounding up the corrupt

25 August, Himal

Interview with Shreedhar Sapkota, spokesperson of Centre for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority

Himal: What led to the arrest of so many high ranking government officials?

Shreedhar Sapkota: We had ample evidence against officials involved in corruption. And then those who are caught are also providing testimony implicating others.

How long will the arrest campaign continue for?

This is our day-to-day job and not a campaign. We made these arrests after collecting evidence for a long time. There are still many who will be arrested soon. For us action speaks louder than words so you’ll see the results of our investigation soon.

Will the CIAA also go after high profile political leaders like Pushpa Kamal Dahal for embezzling funds meant for ex-combatants?

CIAA chief, Lok Man Singh Karki, has already made it clear that if anyone has misused his/her authority they will be caught irrespective of their stature. I don’t think I need to repeat it.

Won’t introducing and enforcing stronger rules and regulations be better in controlling corruption?

Since Nepal has already ratified international treaties against corruption some laws and acts need to be formulated accordingly. But those people working honestly need not be worried about our investigations.
