The Nepal Bar Association on Monday is reported to have issued a press release condemning Justice Cholendra Shamsher JB Rana’s decision to boycott the extended full bench assigned to hear the contempt of court case against Dr Govinda KC and managers and journalists of Kantipur daily on the ground that Chief Justice Gopal Parajuli’s date of birth was already settled by the Judicial Council (‘Bar members take exception to Monday’s NBA statement’, March 13, TKP Online).
The fact that the date of birth of the Chief Justice was already finalised by the judicial council does not mean that it cannot be investigated to give true information to the sovereign people of Nepal that have a full and undisputed right to information. If the Judicial Council had done wrong, its wrong decision cannot be eternal truth. The NBA seems to be digging its own grave. Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli should prove that he is the Prime Minister of the people and should push for an investigation of the Judicial Council, Nepal Bar Association and the full history of the Judiciary.
