Maoist ‘kangaroo courts’ to resume

CPN-Maoist on Tuesday decided to reactivate its 'kangaroo courts' across the country.
A meeting of the Revolutionary People's Council (RPC) took the decision in this regard.
"As the common people have failed to receive justice from the current state mechanism and action has not been taken against the corrupt and criminals, we have decided to reactivate such a mechanism to provide justice to the people," said Dr Baburam Bhattarai, coordinator of the council.
He further said that after such a mechanism is set up, people would start taking action against the corrupt and criminals across the country. "It's not exactly the people's court, but it is a mechanism that provides justice to people," Dr Bhattarai said.
The Maoists had dissolved all Kangaroo courts following intense pressure from national and international bodies in the past.
