CJ Sharma refuses to provide copy of speech

Kathmandu, June 18-Chief Justice, Hari Prasad Sharma, friday refused to provide a copy of his speech which he had delivered at the Chief Justices’ Conference in Paro, Bhutan, recently, to journalists who report on legal issues. Sharma refused to give the text of his speech even after the journalists

forwarded a written application to him. “The CJ could not provide a copy of his speech to journalists,” said Sharma’s personal secretary, Shree Krishna Bhattarai. However, Bhattarai produced the journalists’ joint application before the CJ. The CJ had delivered a speech during the three-day conference held from June 11 to 13 in Bhutan. The journalists filed the application only after the Supreme Court spokes-person, Dr Ram Krishna Timalsena, could not provide the text of the CJ’s speech.
