The Nepal Bar Association has requested Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota to assist in the exit of Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher Jabra.
Reaching the Parliament Secretariat at Singha Durbar on Monday, Nepal Bar officials said that the parliament should help Jabbar to resign. Chairman of the Bar, Chandeshwor Shrestha, said that they had come before the Speaker as Chief Justice Jabra had asked them to resign due to road pressure.
Secretary General Lilal Mani Poudel said that the parliament should help Chief Justice Jabra to resign as he had not fulfilled his commitment made during the parliamentary hearing. Chief Justice Jabra accused him of abusing his constitutional responsibilities like private property.
Barr also accused Jabbar of not having the capacity to fulfill his constitutional and legal obligations. The Nepal Bar Association has been staging sit-ins and demonstrations at the Supreme Court premises for almost a month demanding the resignation of Chief Justice Jabra.
But Barr sought the help of parliament, saying that Jabbar did not resign on his own initiative.
