Investigating Allegations of Extra-Judicial Killings in the Terai OHCHR-Nepal (Summary of Concerns)
PDF File Size: 361 KB | Download   
OHCHR supports government efforts to counter criminal activity, increase public security and enhance respect for the law, but stresses that these initiatives should be consistent with international human rights standards and the Interim Constitution. Unfortunately, over the years, OHCHR monitoring teams have documented a troubling pattern in which the security forces resort to the use of excessive and sometimes unwarranted lethal force during their operations. Drawing on OHCHR’s monitoring experience, this summary of concerns attempts to identify problems of law, policy and practice that contribute to persistent allegations of extra-judicial killings, and the failure to fully investigate such allegations.
