Chief Justice Jabra not joining Supreme Court session

2021 Nov 25, 11:34, KIathmandu
The Supreme Court has issued an interim order for an investigation to be conducted against former minister Krishna Gopal Shrestha who has been accused of helping in the release of a landlord who had been accused of racial discrimination.

The judges of the Supreme Court have agreed that Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher Jabra will not join the session after the hearing was managed. With the exception of Chief Justice Jabra, a meeting of 18 judges sitting in the Supreme Court on Wednesday agreed that it would be impossible for the Chief Justice to attend the hearing even after the round of voting began.

"We have made so many serious allegations and we are not in a position to withdraw them now," said a Supreme Court judge. He informed that an understanding has been reached with the limited number of officials of the Nepal Bar Association and the Supreme Court Bar Association on Thursday to hold discussions with 18 people.

Following discussions with legal practitioners, the judges have scheduled a full meeting for Thursday. In the same manner as before, the full meeting, except for Chief Justice Jabra, will decide on the date of implementation of the system of allocating seats by round robin. The judge said that a broad consensus has been reached for that on December 1.

The constitutional bench will not be able to sit for a few more months as the chief justice has been rejected by other judges.
