Ex-ministers’ case defer

The habeas corpus writ petition filed by three ministers of the erstwhile royal government was presented before the full court of the Supreme Court Tuesday but hearing could not start on the case.

The writ petition was presented before the full court comprising Chief Justice Dilip Kumar Poudel and justices Kedar Prasad Giri, Min Bahadur Rayamajhi, Ram Nagina Singh and Anup Raj Sharma. Hearing on the case court not start today as the bench was divided as to whether justice Giri, who handled the case in the division bench, could be part of the full bench.
No date has been given for hearing on the case.

A division bench comprising justice Giri and Tapa Bahadur Magar had referred the former ministers’ case to the full court on Sunday citing legal complexities in the changed situation.
