Court employees call for indefinite strike nationwide
Nepal Judiciary Employees Concern Committee (NEJECC), umbrella organisation of court employees across the country, called for an indefinite strike from Monday.
Court staff at the Apex court and 10 other courts had brought work to a halt yesterday to protest the transfers and press for transparency in administrative and economic affairs.
All judicial and administrative activities in courts across the country have come to a halt today.
To protest against the ill-intended transfers and corruption during recruiting employees in the computer department, we have called for the strike, said NEJECC president Bhandary.
The employees have been demanding transparency in economic and administrative affairs, action against corrupt and withdrawal of the transfers.
The strike will continue unless our demands are met, informed Bhandary.
The employees’ committee said that it was forced to announce the strike as Timalsena transferred its president Binod Adhikary to Rautahat, General Secretary Nagendra Kalakheti to Siraha and member Jiwan Bhandari to Taplejung.
The NEJECC members were given transfer orders following their demand of transparency in investment and recruitment in Information Technology (IT) at the court.
The Supreme Court officials are currently holding discussions to resolve the problem.
