Nepal calls on CPN-Maoist to stop its “law enforcement” activities which have intensified
recently especially in the Kathmandu Valley, and which have resulted in serious abuses of human rights.
OHCHR-Nepal considers these parallel “law enforcement” activities to be illegal, as well as in violation of
international human rights standards to which CPN-Maoist has made repeated commitments. These commitments include the directives issued as a result of the CPN-Maoist Central Committee meeting on 2 September. The directives explicitly state that party cadres shall not conduct abductions, torture and illtreatment, and that those responsible for such actions will be held accountable.
In a letter dated 31 October to CPN-Maoist leadership, OHCHR-Nepal noted that it had confirmed abductions of 39 individuals in the districts of Bhaktapur, Lalitpur and Kathmandu in October alone. The CPN-Maoist itself publicly declared on 21 October that more than 80 individuals had been taken into captivity, whom they accused of being linked to criminal activities.
CPN-Maoist cadres have held individuals incommunicado in hidden locations – thus increasing their
vulnerability to human rights abuses. In September and October, OHCHR-Nepal made visits to eight places
where the CPN-Maoist held individuals in captivity in the Kathmandu Valley. These places included
several factory buildings occupied by the CPN-Maoist, and the offices of CPN-Maoist sister organisations,including the All Nepal Trade Union Federation (ANTUF) and the All Nepal Transport Workers Union (ANTWU). OHCHR-Nepal has received reports of at least seven other locations in Kathmandu Valley used by CPN-Maoist for the interrogation of individuals.
