NBA Chief Barred from Meeting Nepal

Kathmandu, March 28-The administration barred president of the Nepal Bar Association (NBA) Sambhu Thapa and advocate Suwash Newang from meeting CPN-UML general secretary Madhav Kumar Nepal this morning.

According to Thapa, they had gone to the Armed Police Detention Centre at Kakani but the forces denied them entry into it stating that there was "an order from above" not to let them meet Nepal.

Organising a press conference in the afternoon, Thapa seriously condemned the government's action. "It is an attack on the rights of the people not to allow lawyers to meet a detainee," he said.
