Convener of the Interim Constitution Drafting Committee Laxman Aryal said today that the nation needs to review its justice system to adopt more democratic ways by putting aside existing ‘anomalous’ legal procedures.

Aryal, who is also the president of the MCN, said mediation is the most democratic system that makes both the parties feel triumphant and help develop harmonious environment in the

society through restoration of relations.

Chief Executive Officer of the KMC, Dinesh Thapaliya, said the legal department of KMC receives around 700 cases every year. Chief of the Legal Department of KMC, Basanta Acharya, thanked mediation centre and its experts for helping KMC in its endeavour to provide prompt and quality service to the people.
