SC denies CJ met PM

KATHMANDU: The Supreme Court on Friday issued a press release refuting media reports that Chief Justice Sushila Karki had offered her opinion or advice to Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal on constitution amendment.

“The chief justice has not offered any opinion or advice to the PM on constitution amendment. The chief justice does not do so,” the SC stated in its release issued by SC’s Co-spokesperson Bishwa Raj Paudel. Dissemination of false report of this kind about the judiciary, the SC further said, unnecessarily drags judiciary into controversy and attacks the spirit of independent judiciary that misleads the public about the judiciary and leads to erosion of public faith in the judiciary.

The SC warned mediapersons not to publish misleading  reports and urged the public not to be misled by such reports.
