NBA condemns attack on Jhapa district court

The Nepal Bar Association (NBA) today condemned attack on Jhapa District Court by a group of persons claimed themselves to be Maoists.

The group had vandalised the court furniture and destroyed documents and used defamatory language to the judges, staffers and the lawyers yesterday.

“It is a sheer defamation and contemptuous act on the judges, court officials and the lawyers. Vandalising court furniture and destroying documents is a condemnable act,” NBA general secretary, Madhav Banskota, said today while issuing a press release. The NBA also termed the incident tried to tarnish the image of the independent of judiciary.

The NBA told the political parties that there is no other judicial system in the country except the judiciary defined by constitution and law.
