Nepal: Compromising justice and promoting impunity
PDF File Size: 351 KB | Download   
The International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) welcomes the report of the High Commissioner for Human Rights on democracy and the rule of law (A/HRC/22/29). The report identifies key challenges in the process of transition to democracy, including where the rule of law has been eroded following the eruption of armed conflict. It reflects established international law and standards by stating that:

“Newly elected authorities must address the question of impunity, and ensure accountability for serious and systematic violations of human rights and international humanitarian law involving State and non-State actors, through effective redress and remedial strategies. This includes, inter alia, criminal prosecution and national investigation commissions.”
