KATHMANDU, Jan 2: Outgoing Chief Justice Om Prakash Mishra said on Tuesday that he performed his judicial tasks during his career with professional integrity. Mishra, 65, took retirement on Tuesday on the ground of age.
“I always worked honestly on the basis of my knowledge, wisdom and experience,” he said in a press statement issued before taking retirement. “However, it is your responsibility to evaluate my performance.”
Mishra in a rather indirect manner refuted the allegations of irregularities made against him. He also added that he found it easier to perform his duties as the chief justice because of the support received from all staffers and stakeholders.
Mishra became chief justice in August after another contender seniormost justice Deepak Raj Joshi was rejected by the parliamentary hearings committee. Mishra also expressed his gratitude to former chief justices, judges and the legal fraternity and the media for their support.
