Nepalese Children Still Face Serious Human Rights Violations, UN Report Finds
PDF File Size: 24 KB | Download   
Grave violations against children have not stopped in Nepal, although they have fallen significantly in number since the signing in 2006 of the comprehensive ceasefire agreement ending the Asian country’s protracted armed conflict, a new United Nations report says. The report from Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, released today, includes a series of recommendations calling for the enhanced legal protection of minors and stepped-up measures to end the recruitment of children by armed groups and reintegrate child soldiers back into the general community. It finds that many children were recruited by the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN-M) just before the accord was signed in 2006 and that no progress has since been made in formally discharging them, although some have been released informally. Emerging social unrest in the Terai region in the country’s south have also posed new risks for children, including recruitment by armed groups, according to the report, which covers the period from October 2006 to the end of last year.
