SC to clear cases older than five years

Chitwan, April 2

Chief Justice (CJ) Bishwambhar Prasad Shrestha has said the Supreme Court (SC) is committed to clearing cases older than five years by taking up the act as a mission.

Shrestha said that the SC has only 40 cases older than 10 years, left to be cleared and added that processes are ongoing to clear the cases registered five years ago.

The oldest cases were registered in 2010 and are being reduced through the case management system.
Saying that processes for the reforms of the SC have been initiated, Shrestha argued that the number of cases at the SC has increased also due to some laws enacted in the country recently.

CJ Shrestha said that management of officials and judges is taking place based on the load of the cases in the courts.
