Press Statement 23 January 2007 Louise Arbour United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Sindhupalchowk, Nepal
PDF File Size: 73 KB | Download   
Today I have visited the district of Sindhupalchowk, in order to gain a better understanding of some of the human rights issues facing rural communities here. I met with a group of women in Sindhupalchowk, to listen to their concerns about human rights. And I also visited a police station in the village of Balephi, where I learned more about challenges facing police trying to re-establish a presence in rural areas where they have long been absent.

Listening to this group of about 20 women brought home to me once again the terrible impact the conflict has had on the whole range of human rights ­ economic, social and cultural rights as well as civil and political rights. The lack of basic government services, such as in health and education, and the impact of long conflict have all contributed to stifling development initiatives in Nepal over the last decade.
