SC ad hoc judges ‘named’

Kathmandu, Dec 21-The Judicial Council has recently recommended three names from among the appellate court judges and lawyers for their appointment as the ad hoc judges of the Supreme Court.

According to a member of the council, which is headed by the Chief Justice, appeal court judges Tahir Ali Ansari and Rajendra Prasad Koirala and senior advocate Bipulendra Chakarvarti have been recommended for the posts of SC ad hoc judges. “We are expecting that the announcement from the King will come soon,” he said.

Despite Chief Justice Dilip Kumar Paudel’s assurance to the Nepal Bar Association of appointing at least three lawyers as SC judges, only one name has been recommended for the same.
