Judicial Council Secretary Dahal retires

Kathmandu, Mar 23- Secretary at the Judicial Council Kashiraj Dahal has been given retirement from his post as his five-year-term ends Thursday. Dahal, who served in the public service for the last 25 years, had been working as the secretary of the Council since 2057 B S.

There are several issues to be reformed in the judicial sector, including the appointment of judges to maintain dignity of the independent judiciary, Dahal said in a press statement issued during his farewell Wednesday.

The rights of the citizens would be curtailed and institutional progress would be halted if the process of appointing judges was neglected, but there always exists the possibility of correction in the field of politics when it takes a wrong path, he said.

The jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, settlement of the cases, simplification of the judicial procedures ands management of the pleading and prosecuting system were some of the issues to be reformed in the field of judiciary, he said.
