Statement by Mr. Ian Martin Representative of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal To the Association of Families Disappeared by the State
PDF File Size: 30 KB | Download   
Nepal is still among those countries where persons continue to be disappeared, both by the State and the CPN (Maoist). In December 2004, before the opening of our office, the UN working Group on Enforced and Involuntary Disappearances visited Nepal and made important recommendations. Since OHCHR opened its office in Nepal in May, we have been pressing for clarification of these cases and implementation of the recommendations of the UN Working Group. The High Commissioner, in her first report to the General Assembly on the human rights situation in Nepal, in September, and based on the work of our office, highlighted the issue of disappearances as a major concern, and she will soon be
reporting to the Commission for Human Rights.
OHCHR has submitted to the RNA, Home Ministry and Police disappearance cases that have
come directly to our office since we began to function in May 2005. We have had ongoing
meetings with senior RNA officials in order to press for clarification of these cases and to request that a national registry of detained persons is accurately maintained and accessible to family members. In some of these communications, we have mentioned specific occasions since the conflict began in which significant numbers of individuals have disappeared after being arrested. Neither I nor my officers ever divulge the source of information, keeping foremost in our minds the protection of victims and witnesses who may be at risk.
