One year after the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), human rights have been marginalized and subordinated to political considerations, according to a report released today by OHCHR-Nepal. They must be restored to the core of the peace process. Failure to accord the necessary attention to human rights in the process risks engendering further violence and deepening social divisions.
The new report documents the main human rights concerns of the past year, noting that respect for human rights has diminished and that protection of the right to life has been eroded, with more than 130 civilians killed between January and October 2007. Some 60 of those individuals were killed in criminal acts by armed groups, most of them since May, and a further 29 were killed as a result of police action, including some in circumstances amounting to excessive use of force.
