SC forms committee to study model of court in federal structure
The Supreme Court (SC) has formed a five member committee headed by Justice Anup Raj Sharma to study the model of Court in the federal structure.
According to sources, the SC formed a committee comprising representatives of Nepal Bar Association (NBA) and experts to recommend the SC on the model of court in federal structure.
Other members of the committee are Justice of SC Kalyan Shrestha, Chair of NBA Bishow Kant Mainali, secretary at the Ministry of Law Dr. Kul Ratna Bhurtel, advocate Purna Man Shakya and registrar of the SC Dr. Ram Krishna Timilsena.
The committee was asked to submit report on the model of court in federal structure, structure of Justices and offiials at the Court.
However, the Kantipur daily quoted chair of the NBA Mainali as saying that he had heard about the committee but he is yet to get formal letter in this regard.
The SC formed such committee after the state has decided to go for the federal set up by amending interim constitution.
