OHCHR saddened by demise of activist Jay Kishore Labh
PDF File Size: 77 KB | Download   
United Nations Human Rights Office in Nepal (OHCHR) is deeply saddened to learn of the untimely demise of human rights defender, Jay Kishore Labh, of Danusha.
Mr Labh’s son Sanjiv Kumar Karn (Dipu) disappeared on October 2003 along with four other students who were arrested by police in Janakpur and have not been seen again. Mr Labh, a lawyer, fought tirelessly for the disclosure of the fate of the disappeared students and for those responsible to be held to
account. The case has become an emblematic one for many victims and human rights defender organizations, including OHCHR. When the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, visited Nepal last year, she visited Janakpur and held an interaction with Mr Labh and other family members of the
disappeared. She also met with the Superintendent of Police (SP) of the Nepal Police in Danusha and called on him to complete the investigation into the disappearance of the five students. OHCHR has continued to follow up on the case, alongside others such as NHRC, and only 10 days ago urged the IGP to complete the investigation.
