KATHMANDU: The Nepal Bar Association on Thursday drew attention of Chief Justice Ram Kumar Prasad Shah and the Judicial Council to 'criticism facing the judiciary' for its recent activities, in particular the Supreme Court. “The judiciary that is expected to be active on the basis of people’s faith even in any complex situation is now being criticised continuously. Since this hampers the people’s aspirations of independent, able and efficient justice dispensing, it is the responsibility of Chief Justice and Judicial Council to make the judiciary a place of people’s faith,” said the NBA in a press statement. “The NBA wants to draw serious attention of Chief Justice to the spread of negative message due to the deputation (transfer) of more than 45 judges during the period of two months,” said the NBA in the statement.
