Respect law, human rights, says CJ

Kathmandu, May 22:

Chief Justice Dilip Kumar Paudel has called upon everyone to respect rule of law and human rights.

In a message on the occasion of the golden jubilee of the Supreme Court today, he promised to keep the judiciary independent and protect the rights of people who the sovereignty is vested on. “I feel that the relation between the bar and bench should be friendly and cordial, as there cannot be two views between them about maintaining the independence of the judiciary,” said Paudel.

He promised that the judiciary will work in the changed political atmosphere respecting the aspirations of the people. The CJ said the judiciary has been providing economic, political and social justice to the people since its establishment. “The SC is providing justice to the people based on the existing constitution and laws,” he said. The SC was established on Jestha 8, 2013 BS.
