Makawanpur, Feb 27: Chief Justice Bishwambhar Prasad Shrestha has said development of physical infrastructure was an important part in the judiciary system along with making the judiciary contextual, dynamic and qualitative while ensuring good-governance.

Inaugurating the newly-constructed building of Makawanpur District Court here Monday, the Chief Justice (CJ) said the Justices at the Supreme Court were under pressure of a large number of cases due to the failure to appoint Justices in the past.

He shared that he was making efforts to ensure timely justice delivery from the SC through its various benches as the Justices at the SC have already been appointed.

On the occasion, CJ Shrestha argued that it takes time at the District Court to finalize the cases though the local levels make settlements of the cases through discussions and reconciliation. He was of the view that it could take some more time in the judiciary for justice delivery since the verdicts are made in line with the constitution, Acts and others after recording the statements, hearing and evidences.

The CJ also cautioned the stakeholders to the possible concerns that could be raised from the service recipients on the part of impartiality while clearing the cases through reconciliation process in a prompt manner like that of the local levels.

CJ Shrestha said the judiciary should be advanced through its reform process while deepening public trust towards the court, and raise the aspirations that the judiciary gives justice impartially and protects human rights.

Likewise, Justice of SC Dr Kumar Chudal the development of physical infrastructure along with recruitment of judges are on the cards to make the judiciary more effective, pro-public and accountable.

Also speaking at the programme, Internal Affairs and Law Minister of Bagmati Province Ganga Narayan Shrestha urged the justices to play vital roles in increasing public faiths towards the justice system and facilitate the justice delivery provisions to the economically poor people.

Mayor of Hetauda Sub-Metropolitan City Mina Kumari Lama, Chief Judge of Patan High Court Nrip Dhowj Niraula, Judge Yamuna Bhattarai and others expressed their views on timely justice delivery to the people.

The building was constructed with Rs 237.7 million in grant from the government. #Nepal
