Promotion And Protection Of Human Rights, Including the Question of Human Rights Defenders
PDF File Size: 19 KB | Download   
Following the royal coup on 1 February 2005, human rights defenders have been keenly targeted by the Government of Nepal in its attempts to suppress opponents. All criticism of and activities against the absolute monarch have been declared illegal. This effectively means that any activity challenging absolute rule or the blatant and excessive human rights abuses permitted under the current regime--of which the Asian Legal Resource Centre has informed the Commission in other statements is a criminal offence.
Those who continue to defend human rights and freedom of expression in Nepal face a real threat of arbitrary detention. With this comes the risk of assault, torture, custodial death and forced disappearance, all of which are systematic and widespread in Nepal--a fact established by various special procedures of the Commission.
