UN releases Summary of Concerns and suggests recommendations to address Extra Judicial Killings
PDF File Size: 61 KB | Download   
The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal (OHCHR-Nepal) released today a Summary of Concerns entitled Investigating Allegations of Extra-Judicial Killings (EJK) in the Terai covering the
period between January 2008 and June 2010 and documenting thirty-nine
incidents resulting in the deaths of fifty-seven persons. In all cases, there were
credible allegations of unlawful use of lethal force by security forces. OHCHR recognizes that since the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement
in November 2006, one of the greatest challenges for the Government of Nepal
has been to maintain public security. The Office supports government efforts to
counter criminal activity, increase public security and enhance respect for the law,
but stresses that these initiatives should be consistent with international human rights standards and the Interim Constitution. OHCHR believes that this is an especially important moment in the peace process in Nepal to address the human rights implications of special security operations, and to establish as swiftly as possible an independent mechanism, such as a police complaints commission or special unit, to investigate allegations of wrongdoing committed by State actors.
