NBA protests contribute to clean judiciary: Chair Shrestha

2022 Feb 08, 7:50, Kathmandu

Chairperson of Nepal Bar Association (NBA) Chandeshwor Shrestha has said the protest launched by NBA has contributed to begin initiatives for a clean judiciary.

Shrestha viewed the hearing of cases with lottery-system in the court is a significant achievement, which he argued, was the contribution of the protests that NBA launched for over three months. He said it while addressing a press conference the NBA organized on the 100th day of protests on Monday. The NBA has continued its campaign for clean judiciary with several demands including lottery-system in hearing of cases, and end of corruption in judiciary.

In the wake of COVID-19 pandemic, the NBA has continued its protest virtually.

However, Chairperson Shrestha said though the lottery-system was begun after the protest, the judiciary was still suffering from indecision. It has failed to conduct meeting of the Judicial Council and Judicial Service Commission, he added.

Similarly, Chairperson of NBA Supreme Court chapter, Dr Purna Man Shakya, made it clear that the NBA's protest was not targeted against anyone but for the reform in entire judiciary with the control of corruption. He believed that the protest was for restoring judiciary's image.
