KATHMANDU, Nov 12: The Advocacy Forum Nepal has urged the bodies concerned to take initiatives in order to resolve the problems seen in the judiciary in a sustainable manner.  

A press release issued on Friday by Forum Chair and senior advocate, Hari Prasad Subedi, demanded the arrangement of clear rules and processes not to let such incidents repeat in the future by finding solutions to existing problems of the judiciary in a legal way. 

The Forum determines that all concerned including lawmakers, government and judicial council should take initiatives to resolve the stalemate of the judiciary. It also asked to carry out the investigation of all types of issues raised by agitating lawyers in a transparent and reliable manner and implement the suggestions of a high-level probe committee formed by the Supreme Court to investigate anomalies and aberrations seen in the judiciary.  

"The comments made against justices and judiciary have spoiled public trust toward justices and the sanctity of judiciary. Maintaining judicial good governance is essential to ensure rule of law, guarantee justice and institutional development of democracy as well as strengthen the principle of separation of powers," reads the statement.
