Judges and bar officials engage in discussions, the bottom line of the resignation of the Chief Justice

Eleven judges were present at Monday’s meeting. However, Shrestha said that only 19 judges would participate in today’s meeting. In Monday’s discussion, Barr made the resignation of the chief justice the bottom line. It is expected that further decision will be taken from today’s discussion. Though Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher Jabra has called for talks, the legal practitioners have already refused.
The movement of Nepal Bar did not stop even during the bandh
Kathmandu: The Nepal Bar Association, which is agitating against Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher Jabra, has also staged a sit-in at the Nepal Bandh. Bar, who has been protesting for 23 days, has started a sit-in at the Supreme Court on Tuesday morning. Even though the Nepal of Netra Bikram Chand Biplava-led CPN (Maoist) is closed today, the bar has given continuity to the agitators.
Chief Justice Jabbar issued a statement on Saturday calling for a formal dialogue. But the Nepal Bar has rejected the proposal and given continuity to the movement. Even the Supreme Court judges have not sat in the court with the demand that Jabra should lead the way.
