OHCHR has this week submitted to the Prime Minister, in his capacity as Minister of Defence, as well as to the Chief of Army Staff, a report of its investigations into the arrest, detention, torture and continuing disappearance of individuals arrested by the then Royal Nepalese Army (RNA,now the Nepalese Army) and held in Maharajgunj barracks in Kathmandu in 2003 on suspicion of being linked to the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist).

OHCHR initiated investigations into these serious allegations soon after it set up its office in Nepal in May 2005. It did so after dozens of relatives of the disappeared lodged complaints at its office. OHCHR has conducted more than 50 interviews with the families of the disappeared, with former detainees and with other witnesses and informants regarding their detention and torture.
