Chief Justice Rana enters Supreme Court despite obstruction of lawyers
KATHMANDU: Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher JB Rana reached his office despite the obstruction of Nepal Bar Association, the umbrella body of lawyers across the nation, on Sunday.
Chief Justice Rana entered his office amid high security as the lawyers continued their protest outside the apex court.
The disgruntled lawyers had earlier announced they would not allow the Chief Justice to enter the Supreme Court.
The Chief Justice, however, has been saying the he would not step down from his post.
He also formed 10 benches of lawyers apart from him to hear the cases.
The lawyers have been staging demonstrations for the past few weeks demanding resignation of Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher JB Rana, who has been accused of seeking to appoint his brother-in-law as a minister in the Sher Bahadur Deuba-led government and delaying the hearing of cases filed against appointments to the constitutional bodies.
