Do not carry news on sub judice case: Chief Justice JBR


KATHMANDU: Supreme Court Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher JBR has urged the media persons not to carry news on the cases that are sub judice in the court, arguing that it could affect the judiciary’s performance for justice delivery.

At a programm organized to discuss on the fourth 5th strategic plan for the judicial sector here today, Chief Justice JBR reiterated that if news are carried on the sub judice cases and questions were raised on them, it would affect the justice delivery process. “If a scholar pens his thought about sub judice case, such publications are also presented during the court’s proceedings. That could influence the judicial performance,” he said.
