KATHMANDU: The full court of the Supreme Court of Nepal has decided to shut down courts across the country.

A full court meeting chaired by Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher Rana on Friday decided to suspend the court’s activities for two weeks in view of the fast-spreading coronavirus.

According to a highly-placed source at the SC, all the courts across the country will remain shut until April 4 as part of preparations to prevent the possible spread of the novel virus.

This decision, however, will not apply to the cases related to habeas corpus. These cases will continue.
