Unnecessary comments weaken judiciary-CJ Mishra

Inaugurating a national conference on human rights organised by Nepal Bar Association here on Monday, CJ Mishra further said, “Vague allegation that anomalies and corruption are propping up in judiciary does not make sense. One should lodge complaint stating who took how much and when”.

The Chief Justice also underlined the need for the Nepal Bar Association to play effective role for judiciary’s independence and efficiency.
On the occasion, Province-1 Minister for Internal Affairs and Law Hikmat Karki said that the people can realize a sense of justice only when the judiciary is made further responsible and accountable.
