The most significant factor affecting the trend in conflict-related abuses was the four months of unilateral ceasefire declared by the CPN (Maoist). This saw a marked reduction in killings of all kinds, although other violations by the CPN (Maoist) continued, including abductions, threats and extortion, as did violations by security forces. There was also a marked decline in disappearances reported in 2005, although I must stress as strongly as I can the continuing responsibility of the State to clarify the many outstanding cases of disappearances from previous years.
It is a tragedy for the people of Nepal that full-scale conflict has now resumed. When the
unilateral ceasefire ended, High Commissioner Louise Arbour emphasized that there must not
be the same gross violations of international humanitarian law and human rights standards that have been perpetrated during previous phases of the conflict.
