Nepal’s first female chief justice suspended

Nepal’s first female Supreme Court chief justice was suspended after an impeachment motion was filed in parliament accusing her of bias and interfering with executive powers.

Sushila Karki, who had one of the highest positions ever held by a woman in Nepal, was suspended automatically after the motion signed by nearly half the members in parliament was registered, Supreme Court spokesman Mahendra Nath Upadhaya said Monday.
