Jhapa, November 5

Justice delivery has been affected due to the lack of separate rooms for judicial committees in the local levels of Jhapa.

Of the 15 local levels in Jhapa, only Damak Municipality has a separate room for the judicial committee. No other local level in the district has a separate room for judicial committee.

Bhadrapur Municipality Deputy Mayor Chandra Shrestha said there was a problem in maintaining secrecy during justice delivery due to lack of a separate room for the judicial committee.

She added that a separate room would be set aside for the judicial committee in the under-construction building of the municipality.

Deputy Mayor Gita Adhikari of Damak Municipality said justice delivery from the separate rooms would ensure discipline, safety and secrecy. Adhikari said that the municipality had appointed a lawyer to settle disputes.

The deputy mayor said 32 of the 64 cases filed in the municipality judicial committee were settled.

Deputy Mayor Pabitra Mahara of Birtamod Municipality said justice delivery had been affected due to lack of a separate room for the judicial committee.

Likewise, Gauradaha Municipality Deputy Mayor Gita Bhetwal said they had been facing difficulties hearing cases due to lack of a separate room.

Mechinagar Municipality has its own building, but justice delivery has been affected due to the lack of separate rooms for its judicial committee.  Deputy Mayor Mina Uprety said a separate room would be set aside for the judicial committee soon to that service delivery was not affected.
