KATHMANDU, AUGUST 2: Five and a half months have passed since an impeachment motion was filed against Chief Justice Cholendra SJB Rana. But parliament has not yet put it on the agenda for discussion. From this, it is clear that parliament has neglected the judiciary. The meeting of the House of Representatives has been going on continuously since the impeachment motion was registered against the head of the judiciary. But since the political parties in parliament are not interested in proceeding with the impeachment process, it is being analyzed that the impeachment motion was registered only to humiliate the head of the judiciary.

KATHMANDU, July 8: Several old cases are pending at the Supreme court (SC) - some for the past two decades - due to the ‘lack of time’ to hear these cases. One such case in point is the case involving former executive general manager of Nepal Oil Corporation, Yuvraj Sharma. After a series of hearings on the corruption case filed against Sharma, the SC ruled to announce the final verdict on the case. It’s already been two years since that SC decision, but the final verdict on the case hasn’t been announced. The SC ruled two years ago that Sharma had embezzled Rs 5.4 million, but the final verdict on the case is yet to be made.
