Writ filed at SC against recommendation of 11 judges

Writ filed at SC against recommendation of 11 judges
KATHMANDU, June 3: The Supreme Court administration Friday registered a writ filed against the recommendations of 11 judges for the appointment as SC justices.

A single bench of SC Justice Baidyanath Upadhyay had ordered the court administration on Thursday to accept the writ field by advocate Purna Chandra Poudel.

The date for a preliminary hearing on the writ has been fixed for Sunday.

It may be noted that the Judicial Council some three months ago recommended the name of 11 persons (seven chief judges of appellate courts and four senior advocates) for the appointment to the posts of Supreme Court judges.

Advocate Poudel moved the SC, challenging the recommendation stating it was 'non-legal', but the court administration refused to registrar the writ.

The Thursday's order was in a response to Poudel's appeal against the court administration's refusal to file the writ. RSS
