PDF File Size: 58 KB | Download   
Incidents of systematic torture, ill treatment of detainees, extra-judicial killings, disappearances, illegal arrests and re-arrests in contravention to decisions and orders by the court and harassment as well as intimidation of human rights defenders, journalists and other citizen by the security forces and other agencies of government has become common. Likewise, the Maoists have also indulged in wanton and unspeakable violence and intimidation against the civilians, forced recruitment of children, use of civilians as human shield in the armed operations, brutal killings, torture, ambushing, rapes, extortion and forced donations, taking mass abductions of civilians, forcing youth to join war, destruction of development infrastructure and frequent closure of transport, schools, business and industries and forced displacement of 1000s of civilians. In short, the civilians have been caught in the cross-fire between the two warring parties resulting in most inhuman victimization, human rights abuses, and unimaginable misery among the people. Moreover, adding insult to injury, as result of unconstitutional Royal takeover of 01 Feb 2005, multiparty democracy and Human Rights in Nepal has suffered a serious setback thereby inviting resolution under the 'Item-19' passed by the 61st session of the UNCHR, because of the continuous violation of human rights and rule of law by regime. So far, Nepal has witnessed two unsuccessful peace talks, first in the year 2001 and second in 2003 between the government and the Maoists rebels through the internal initiatives. However, now it seems unlikely that without the good offices of some credible and acceptable third party mediator warring parties are going to sit for any kind of peaceful dialogue or negotiation.
