SC upholding rule of law, says justice Rayamajhi

Kathmandu, May 29:

Supreme Court Justice Min Bahadur Rayamajhi today said the apex court was always committed to protecting the rule of law and independence of the judiciary.

“The SC has been upholding the rule of law in the most difficult times,” Rayamajhi said while addressing the seventh anniversary of the Kathmandu School of Law (KSL) today. The SC has been short of manpower for the last 50 years since its establishment, he added.

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Subhas Nemwang, said the law should not allow autocracy to thrive in the country as the people are against it. “The people’s movement was successful in establishing Lokatantra. Everybody should now work to bring about complete change through the election to a Constituent Assembly,” Nemwang said. Attorney General Yagyamurti Banjade said as a democracy is governed by law, everybody should abide by the latter, while Executive Director of the KSL, Yuba Raj Sangroula, urged everyone to respect law and push for the election to a Constituent Assembly.
