OHCHR URGES THE INVESTIGATION AND PREVENTION OF SERIOUS HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES BY CPN­M
PDF File Size: 168 KB | Download   
At a meeting with the CPN­M leadership on 23 June 2006 and in a subsequent letter of 26 June, OHCHR raised its concerns regarding a series of abductions and killings attributed to CPN­M cadres in the Central Region, which have resulted in the deaths of nine individuals since 3 May 2006. It also raised the cases of two individuals who were reportedly abducted in Kathmandu and severely beaten in Kavre. In most of the cases, the victims were accused of “crimes” or “offences” and were apparently under investigation. In some of those cases, local CPN­M leaders had accepted responsibility and had apologized. OHCHR remains concerned, however, that civilians continue to be abducted and held by the CPN­M in spite of repeated expressions of concern by OHCHR.

During the meeting with OHCHR, the CPN­M leadership gave assurances that such
killings are not CPN­M policy and that the CPN­M takes these cases very seriously. It also stated that investigations will be carried out and that any CPN­M cadres found responsible will be punished.
