The wiped out committee of the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) has made the decision to seek legal remedy to reinstate itself.
The government on Thursday had dissolved the cricket governing body following a recommendation from the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) who had concluded on June 8 that the committee was corrupt and ineligible to run the sport in the country.
CIAA had also filed graft charges against 10 of its officials including President Tanka Aangbuhang, General Secretary Ashok Nath Pyakuryal and treasurer Raju Babu Shrestha. The decision from the government came almost six months after the cricket governing body was left in turmoil.
The cabinet on Thursday also brought an ad-hoc committee under its former President Binay Raj Pandey naming Ramesh Silwal as the General Secretary and Sriharsha Koirala as the vice-president.
Deepak Saud, spokesperson and member of the dissolved committee said: “This is purely a government intervention that has ignored the presence of National Sports Council as the country’s supreme sports governing body.”
“We will file a case against the decision at the Supreme Court and report everything to the International Cricket Council and Asian Cricket Council,” added Saud.
