By Bhola B Rana

Kathmandu, 25 Jan.: In a major boost for Nepal and Defence
Minister Bidya Bhandari, a two-man supreme court bench Sunday
vacated a stay order to halt the promotion of Lt Gen Toran Jung Bahadur Singh.

NA and Defence Minister Bhandari recommended the promotion but
the government of Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal withheld
the promotion for several months under intense foreign and UN
The Nepal government approved the promotion rejecting pressures after
Intense lobbying from the defence ministry and army.
The two-men bench overturned a decision of Supreme Court Chief Justice
Anup Raj Sharma and said Lt Gen Singh is not guilty of human rights
abuses when he was chief of the Bhairabnath Battalion at the capital where 40 plus Maoists went missing during the insurgency.
The division bench ruled no charges were brought against Singh before his promotion when he was major general.
The supreme court decision comes at a time when government was under pressure also to present Major Niranjan Basnet at Kavre district court for alleged involvement in a murder of a girl while in military custody.

Thanks for your post. One other thing is that if you are disposing your
property all on your own, one of the problems you
need to be alert to upfront is when to deal with property
inspection accounts. As a FSBO owner, the key concerning successfully
shifting your property along with saving money upon real estate agent commissions is knowledge.

The more you know, the softer your property sales effort
will likely be. One area where this is particularly critical is inspection reports.

The very root of your writing while sounding agreeable at first, did not really settle
properly with me after some time. Someplace throughout the
sentences you actually managed to make me a
believer but just for a very short while. I however have a
problem with your leaps in logic and one might do nicely to help fill in all those gaps.

In the event you actually can accomplish that, I would surely end up being fascinated.

I have learned newer and more effective things from a blog post.
One other thing I have found is that usually, FSBO sellers will reject you actually.
Remember, they would prefer to not use your expert services.

But if a person maintain a comfortable, professional romance, offering aid and in contact for four to five weeks,
you will usually be capable to win interviews.
From there, a listing follows. Cheers
