Justice Sinha loses cool during hearing
Kathmandu, 20 January (2021) - Justice Anil Kumar Sinha expressed displeasure at an advocate's comment during the hearing on cases against dissolution of House of Representatives on Wednesday.
Advocate Kanchan Krishna Neupane was arguing on behalf of the writ petitioners. He said that Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli was trying to influence the court and telling all that the parliament will not be reinstated.
Hearing this, Justice Sinha lost his cool. He said, "What he said isn't important. You present your arguments. We won't be influenced by his talks. You focus on the matter of your petition, we'll address that," Justice Sinha said with an edge in voice.
He also drew attention of lawyers to refrain from presenting long and repetitive arguments.
Advocate Neupane consented to Justice Sinha's urgings.
Hearing for today ended after this episode. The hearing will continue tomorrow.
Constitutional bench of the Supreme Court has been continuously hearing cases against disbandment of parliament since Sunday.
