The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) released a
report Friday on its investigations into a series of disappearances* that occurred in Nepal’s Bardiya District during the conflict between government and Maoist forces.
The report documents disappearances by both the security forces and by the
Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN-M). The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay noted that the Government of Nepal has prepared legislation to establish a commission of inquiry to investigate all disappearances committed during the conflict, including the 170 cases documented in her organisation’s report.
