PDF File Size: 154 KB | Download   
The United Nations Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights Ms. Kyung-wha Kang on Wednesday presented the report of the High Commissioner on the situation of human rights in Nepal at the 16th session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva. The report is an annual submission focusing on the key human rights developments and challenges over the previous year and setting out the activities of the OHCHR office in Nepal, including its’ monitoring of the human rights situation and provision of technical assistance to state institutions and civil society. This year’s report highlights the consequences of the prolonged political stalemate on the peace process, including delays in finalizing the new constitution and establishing the transitional justice mechanisms, crucial to addressing impunity. The lack of accountability for conflict-related and post-conflict human rights violations, and for widespread discriminatory practices on grounds of caste, gender and sexual orientation, remain a considerable concern.
