Kathmandu, August 1- The newly appointed Chief Justice, Dilip Kumar Paudel, today said he would give due importance to a pending case regarding the reinstatement of the dissolved House of Representatives. The much-talked-about review plea on the case is pending in the Supreme Court for the past three years. Talking to journalists at his chamber in the Supreme Court immediately after he was administered the oath of office by King Gyanendra, Paudel said: “The case would be scheduled for a hearing in a bench according to the law.” He, however, said he cannot give details. Paudel further said he would spend his time hearing cases rather than engaging in other administrative work. “Providing justice is the duty of the Chief Justice and, as such, I will give priority to the dispensation of justice,” he said. He also unveiled an 11-point action plan for his two-year-long tenure. Paudel said he would maintain discipline in the judiciary by making effective the Judicial Council and the Judicial Service Commission. “The Council will be effective in checking graft and irregularities in courts,” he said. According to him, the judiciary is still independent at a time when the country is facing a constitutional crisis. “People are questioning the judiciary without any basis,” he said. When asked about his appointment through ‘extra-constitutional measures’, he said it was just an allegation. “There has been no amendment in the Constitution as claimed by legal experts,” he said. He also said he would work towards implementing the first five-year strategic plan of the judiciary to reform courts. “And for this, I will work on implementing reports submitted by several committees.” He said special programmes would be introduced during his tenure to implement court verdicts. He further said a computer network would be established to modernise the judiciary.
