‘In search of judicial independence’ op-ed in Kathmandu Post by Shelter City Fellow

Shelter City Fellow of T.M.C. Asser Instituut and human rights defender, Mohan, calls for reform of the Nepalese judicial council in an op-ed. 

While power at the executive and legislative level was transferred to the local, provincial and federal tiers, Mohan writes, “one significant arm of the government continues to remain non- federalised in federal Nepal: the judiciary.”

“It is essential to ensure that the transparency, accountability, competence, independence and fairness of the judges and the judiciary is maintained.”
