OHCHR-Nepal Condemns Bus Bombing In Bara District; Urges Non-violent Demonstrations And Political Rallies
PDF File Size: 58 KB | Download   
OHCHR-Nepal condemns the bombing Friday of a bus in Bara District, which killed at least seven people and injured many others. The Office offers condolences to the families of the victims, and urges security officials to take swift action to bring to justice members of the Tarai Army, which has claimed responsibility for the bombing. The incident occurred one year after the start of the Madheshi Andolan, which ended in the deaths of at least 24 people, and on the eve of a series of planned rallies and demonstrations in the Tarai relating to the upcoming Constituent Assembly elections. OHCHR-Nepal is calling on all concerned actors to exercise restraint and take the necessary steps to ensure that violence will not recur at this critical time in the peace process. Law enforcement officials must balance respecting the right to freedom of assembly with their duty to protect the population. In the face of aggressive or violent demonstrators, any force used should be proportional to the level of threat.
Leaders of protesting groups also have a responsibility to ensure that demonstrations are peaceful and that their supporters carry no sticks, guns or other weapons. OHCHR-Nepal calls on all actors to respect the rights of journalists and human rights defenders to carry out their activities without threat of violence. At the same time, they are urged to take all necessary protection measures to avoid exposing young people under 18 to violence, or to manipulation for political ends.
