Ms. Kyung-wha Kang United Nations Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights Statement to the Media 20 April 2011, Kathmandu
PDF File Size: 158 KB | Download   
This press statement involves about the progress of peace process and that political consensus on important issues has been reached, despite ongoing challenges.Nepal has committed to establishing transitional justice mechanisms to confront and address both the causes and the conduct of the ten-year conflict.The establishment of the Disappearances Commission and the Truth and
Reconciliation Commission can provide solutions through criminal justice,truth seeking, reparations and institutional reform. Passing the laws to establish these mechanisms in Nepal is both necessary and urgent.
The Constitution-making process also offers an historic opportunity to
address the root causes of societal strife, enshrine protection mechanisms
for all rights, and address longstanding discrimination and social
exclusion.Effective implementation and enforcement of the law by the police and civil service is also needed to ensure access to justice and right to an effective remedy for victims.
