Legal reforms stressed to check social crimes

The desired success regarding the cases registered at the court has not been attained owing to the lack of direct involvement of public prosecutors in the investigative works of the cases.

The public prosecutors are not being able to achieve success in the cases though they are major component of criminal judicial administration as the role of advocacy and lobbying in deciding the cases registered in the court is only coordinating.

Various speakers stressed on the need of bringing about reforming measures in existing laws for the prevention of social crimes, protection of human rights, providing justice to the victims, and establishing rule of law.

It was stressed at a regional annual task review and training programme of government legal practitioners organised here from today.

Attorney General Yagyamurti Banjade said the real victims would only get justice and social crimes would be prevented only when reforms brought in investigation process with a view to removing legal loopholes.

Acting Chief Judge of Appellate Court, Pokhara Mohan Prasad Ghimire said the cases are not successful if appropriate examinations would not be carried out in the lack of public prosecutors in the investigation.

Also speaking at the programme were Legal Reforms Council Secretary Mohan Banjade, Nepal Bar Association Vice-chairman Bishnu Kushal Bhujel, Nepal Legal Practitioners Council Member Hari Subedi, Appellate Bar Association, Pokhara Chapter Chairman Phadindra Koirala, Deputy inspector General of Police (DIGP) Ramesh Kumar Shrestha and others.
