KATHMANDU:- Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher JBR has assigned hearing into all types of cases including the habeas corpus cases today. Out of the eight benches assigned for the hearing, seven are division benches and one is single bench.
Although the hearing has been designated, the hearings have not yet started.
The Supreme Court judges have been refusing to conduct the hearing since October 24, calling for Chief Justice JBR’s resignation after allegations that he sought a share in the expansion of the Council of Ministers and this has raised a question on the dignity of the judiciary.
Hearing into cases has not taken place in the Supreme Court from October 25 onwards. Hearing has been held only on cases related to habeas corpus in between.
Chief Justice JBR has argued that he has become the Chief Justice as per the due process of the constitution and the laws, and is capable of and has been fulfilling his responsibility accordingly. He has also urged the other justices to fulfill their responsibilities as per the constitution and the laws.
Hearing into cases has been stalled in the apex court and the service-seekers have been facing inconvenience due to this.
Security has been tightened due to the sit-in protest of the Nepal Bar Association in the court premises today.
