OHCHR Representative raises Human Rights Concerns With CPN-M leaders
PDF File Size: 23 KB | Download   
OHCHR has been monitoring the development of the United Revolutionary People’s
Councils (URPC) in parts of Nepal, following CPN-M’s decision to activate them as “a mechanism to resolve people’s problems and help provide justice to the people”. The OHCHR Representative sought clarification on the role the Councils play, particularly in relation to governance and justice. Chairman Prachanda stated that they will not function as a parallel authority and that the CPN-M remains committed to the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA). OHCHR-Nepal has previously noted that the weaknesses of law enforcement agencies and the criminal justice system remain a challenge to addressing human rights violations and abuses. However, the Office considers that public confidence in the CPN-M’s commitment to human rights is undermined by human rights abuses committed by some of its cadres. OHCHR reiterates the comment made in its June 2007 report into allegations of abuses of human rights by the CPN-M and Young Communist League (YCL): while there are legitimate concerns in relation to weaknesses of law enforcement agencies and other state institutions, as well as delays in implementing the CPA, these arguments cannot be used to justify people taking the law into their own hands, or any actions that amount to human rights abuses.
