Commitments To Establish Transitional Justice Mechanisms Should Not Justify Impunity
PDF File Size: 35 KB | Download   
In Nepal, the fact that the parties to the Comprehensive Peace Agreement have
committed and provided for the establishment of such transitional justice mechanisms certainly reflects this practice and constitutes a welcome development. These mechanisms should achieve a comprehensive set of objectives, including the establishment of truth in relation to human rights and international humanitarian law
violations and pave the way for justice and reparation for the victims. They are also
necessary as it would be difficult for the national courts and other rule of law institutions in the country to deal with all aspects of these violations and their
broader impact upon the society. The transitional justice mechanisms may for example analyse patterns of violations committed and design appropriate measures to support affected groups.
