The united nations high commissioner for human rights today said that she was shocked by the excessive use of force by security forces in nepal, as well as the extensive use of arbitrary detention in violation of the right to freedom of peaceful assembly.expressing his concern about the developing confrontation a week ago, secretary-general kofi annan noted that virtually all avenues for peaceful protest in Nepal seem to have been closing, high Commissioner Louise arbor said. now violence has mounted, despite the efforts of my office in Nepal to urge restraint on both demonstrators and security forces.human rights officers witnessed the most excessive use of force to date against demonstrators in Kathmandu by members of the armed police force and the Nepal Police, and the toll of serious injuries added to three fatal shootings around he country has risen alarmingly.Nepal Police and armed Police force have helped the united nations uphold the rule of law in its peace operations. but I must make clear that my commitment to provide the department of Peacekeeping Operations with information regarding individuals implicated in human rights violations extends to them as much as it does to the royal nepalese army.
