SC Rules to reduce the power of CJ

2021 Nov 22, 17:37, Kathmandu
The Supreme Court has issued an interim order for an investigation to be conducted against former minister Krishna Gopal Shrestha who has been accused of helping in the release of a landlord who had been accused of racial discrimination.

The amendment made in the Supreme Court Rules to reduce the discretionary power of Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher Jabra has gained legitimacy.

Supreme Court (Second Amendment) Rules 2078 has been published in the Gazette on Monday. There is a legal provision that any government decision will get legitimacy only after it is published in the Gazette.

The full meeting of the Supreme Court held had amended that on the Supreme Court Rules 2074 by reducing the power of the Chief Justice to appoint the case. After the revised rules were published in the Gazette, the power of the Chief Justice to decide the case has been curtailed.

Rule 20 of the amended rules states, "For the hearing of a case registered in a court, a bench shall be constituted and a list of cases shall be determined by ballot."
