No freedom of speech in Nepal anymore


Homnath Sigdel, 44, superimposed Nepalese Prime Minister Khadga Prasad Sharma Oli’s head over a monkey’s body and shared the picture on Facebook triggering a flurry of reactions. The morphed image became an instant hit and was shared over 2,600 times.

New Delhi (Sputnik): Police in Nepal have arrested a person named Homnath Sigdel from Bhaktapur for sharing a morphed image on Facebook showing Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli as a monkey according to local media.

Sigdel could face up to five years in jail or a $900 fine or both if found guilty of violating Nepal's Electronics Transactions Act.

​The communist government in Nepal led by KP Sharma Oli has recently come under serious criticism for allegedly trying to silence critics and voices of dissent by introducing a new criminal code that intends to curtail press freedom in the country. 

https://t.co/lNqSBOsvq3 A new law has taken effect in Nepal from today, which has raised concerns about media freedom there. Now, investigative journalism can lead to jail.
