PDF File Size: 98 KB | Download   
GENEVA-The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights today marked the fourth anniversary of the killing of 15-year-old Maina Sunuwar with a call for further efforts to be made to combat impunity in Nepal. Maina Sunuwar was tortured and killed in February 2004 while in the custody of the Nepalese Army. Her case has come to symbolize the fate of hundreds of other Nepalese who were disappeared, by both sides, during the decade-long armed conflict.
