Allegations of Human Rights Abuses by the Young Communist League (YCL) - June 2007
PDF File Size: 223 KB | Download   
The Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) signed between the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (CPN-M) and the Seven-Party Alliance (SPA)on 21 November 2006 mandates OHCHR to monitor the implementation of the human rights provisions of the accord. In that context, OHCHR has been monitoring the conduct of the state security forces, particularly with regard to legality of detention,treatment of detainees in police custody (including that of members of the Young Communist League (YCL)) and conditions of detention in police offices and prisons. OHCHR continues to monitor the capacity of the police to respect human rights in maintaining law and order. OHCHR has raised its concerns on these issues directly with the authorities at national and local levels, as well as in public statements. In the context of its monitoring of the CPA, OHCHR has also issued comments and statements on disappearances, on impunity and accountability for state violations and those abuses committed by the CPN-M. An overview of human rights concerns related to the peace process was included in the High Commissioner for Human Rights’ report to the Human Rights Council in March. OHCHR also issued a report on the findings of its investigations into the killing of 27 CPN-M members in March 2007 following violence which broke out when the Madheshi Janadhikar Forum(MJAF) and CPN-M organized simultaneous rallies in Gaur, Rautahat District, Central Region on 21 March.
