Civil and Political Rights, Including:The Questions of Torture and Detention
PDF File Size: 126 KB | Download   
The Special Rapporteur on the question of torture undertook a visit to Nepal from 10 to 16 September 2005, at the invitation of the Government. He expresses his appreciation to the Government for the full cooperation it provided to him throughout the visit. The report contains a study of the legal and factual aspects regarding the situation of torture or ill-treatment in Nepal. On the basis of his interviews with current and former detainees, with the support of forensic medical evidence, and interviews with government and military officials, lawyers and representatives of non-governmental organizations, the Special Rapporteur concludes that torture and ill-treatment are systematically practised in Nepal by the police, the armed police and the Royal Nepalese Army. That the Government needs urgently to send a clear and unambiguous message condemning torture and ill-treatment was made dramatically clear to the Special Rapporteur when he was repeatedly told by senior police and military officials that torture was acceptable in some instances, and was indeed systematically practiced.
