Kathmandu, May 19:

The Embassy of the United States of America today handed over 61 computers to the Supreme Court. The SC will distribute the computers to 15 different district courts.

US Ambassador to Nepal James F Moriarty handed over the computers to Chief Justice Hari Prasad Sharma at a function attended by SC judges, senior officials of the US Embassy, the USAID and the ARD Rule of Law. Sharma said such aid would help the judiciary improve efficiency in its work and boost the rule of law.

Moriarty said the embassy has given the computers so that the courts could deliver justice promptly based on the principle that justice delayed is justice denied. He said the US would continue to assist the judiciary in the future too.

Acting SC registrar, Ram Krishna Timalsena, said such aid would help the judiciary to improve the quality of justice delivery.
