July 8, Kathmandu. Kathmandu District Court Judge Raj Kumar Koirala, who was involved in an audio dispute with a lawyer, has claimed that he did not intend to take bribe.
Talking to online news, he said that the lawyer Rudra Pokharel had called him by lying and repeatedly asked him to listen to him. The dialogue between Advocate Pokharel and Judge Koirala on the issue of the then Chairman of the Civil Savings and Credit Cooperatives, Ichchha Raj Tamang, has recently become public. Judge Koirala, on the other hand, said that he had only heard the matter.
“I have been receiving a lot of phone calls since I started looking into that issue. And I switched off, ‘he said,’ I changed the SIM card on my wife’s phone (set) and put another number. I found out from somewhere and called. ‘ Koirala said that he entered the bathroom to take a shower when his phone rang and his wife said that his name was Rudra Pokharel.
According to him, after picking up the phone, Pokhrel started talking and entered the subject. Koirala said that he was tempted to call again and again, saying that he was tempted to do so.
“As soon as he called, he said, ‘That’s it, that’s it,’” Judge Koirala told Online News. “Don’t talk about money, sir. I have my father’s property, my grandfather’s property. That is enough, I have said that I am not greedy for a single rupee. ‘ He claims that many of the conversations he had at the beginning did not come out.
“There was no question of not responding after calling. People like the treasurer of the bar have spoken. “Yes, I have to say yes,” he said. I said it would not happen under any circumstances. Then he said, “You don’t have to listen to talk?” I have heard what is being said and I have agreed on it. ‘ He claims that even that dialogue did not come out.
According to Judge Koirala, there were many victims in the civil cooperative fraud case. He said that during the hearing of the case, some of the victims came in front of him and started crying, shouting and screaming. ‘I’m not going to. He said, “I told him as much as I could. If he (Pokhrel) told me not to listen, then I have talked so much.”
According to Judge Koirala, there was a lot of pressure on the case of the accused, including Ichchha Raj Tamang. After many calls, he switched off and said he was sitting.
Koirala said that he had received phone calls from high court judges, leaders of political parties and police officers for the case. He said that some of them even contacted him from his driver’s phone.
‘I don’t, I don’t. People are suffering. He said, “Who wouldn’t have called me (for that issue)?” However, Koirala said that Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher Jabra did not call. He further added that he himself had ordered to send Tamang to jail.
‘I have a straight line, I have not cracked. I had switched off the phone for 15/20 days due to a lot of pressure. You can tell by looking at the telecom, ‘he said. This is the society, I don’t want to talk on the phone. Unable to eat, it was like a leather cap. I was drowned in vain. ‘
