Buoyed NBA asks King to resolve crises

Kathmandu, February 24:

The Nepal Bar Association today said as the Supreme Court had issued a verdict in the RCCC case favouring the rights of people, the King should be ready to resolve the political and constitutional crises in the country.

“The verdict is praiseworthy, everyone should respect it,” NBA president Shambhu Thapa said today. He was speaking at a press conference organised by the lawyers’ body to announce its four-day convention starting March 1 to mark the NBA’s golden jubilee. He said the NBA this time did not demand any support from the government to hold the convention where about 3,000 lawyers will participate.

Thapa also said the NBA this time did not invite the Chief Justice Dilip Kumar Paudel or ad hoc judge Pawan Kumar Ojha to be the chief guest at the convention of the lawyers’ body. “We will present our demand to the King, asking him to resolve the crisis in the country,” NBA general secretary Madhav Banskota said.
