Nepal: U.N. Human Rights Field Operation a Step Forward Continuing Abuses and State of Emergency Must Still be Addressed by the Commission on Human Rights
PDF File Size: 30 KB | Download   
Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and the International Commission of Jurists today welcomed the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the government of Nepal and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights providing for deployment of an international human rights presence to Nepal. The agreement calls for U.N. offices to be established in Kathmandu and, importantly, in regional centres, to help establish accountability for rights abuses and prevent further violations by both government forces and Maoist rebels, who have been locked in a civil war since 1996. The organisations stated that full and rapid implementation of the agreement is necessary in order to stem the tide of abuses being committed by the security forces and Maoists. They stressed that the U.N. monitors must have complete freedom of movement in all parts of Nepal, not just to monitor, but also to investigate and report on allegations by any party.“The establishment of a free-standing Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal is an important step towards protecting human rights in Nepal,” said Brad Adams, Asia Director of Human Rights Watch. “The U.N. human rights operation will monitor, and act on abuses by both the government security forces and the Maoists. Although the agreement is clear, the international community must remain vigilant to ensure that this agreement is complied with effectively and fully.”
