PDF File Size: 218 KB | Download   
The Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) signed between the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (CPN-M) and the Seven-Party Alliance (SPA)on 21 November 2006 mandates OHCHR to monitor the implementation of the human rights provisions of the accord.OHCHR’s investigations included interviews with a wide range of sources to corroborate information, including witnesses, victims, CPN-M leadership, YCL representatives, political parties, human rights defenders, members of the Nepal Police (NP), Armed Police Force (APF) and others. In general, OHCHR was able to access information and individuals as requested.The State Cases Act allows a person who witnesses crime 6 being committed by another person to “hold” such person, and thereafter hand him/her over to the nearest Police Office. Non-law enforcement personnel may thus intervene in order to prevent a person who is committing a crime from absconding but may not otherwise deprive the liberty of any person. The State Cases Act also
states that a person who knows that a crime has been committed, is being committed or is going to be committed must, as soon as possible, supply such information to the nearest Police Office by lodging a written complaint or verbal information mentioning relevant evidence to the extent available or seen or known by him/her. Additionally, international law requires that anyone taken into custody may only be held in an official detention centre as designated by the law.
