UN Human Rights Office raises serious concerns with the term extension of Colonel Raju Basnet
PDF File Size: 196 KB | Download   
The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal today expresses serious concern regarding the Nepal Government’s decision to extend the tenure of Nepal Army officer Raju Basnet by two years. On 26 May 2006 OHCHR released the report of its investigation into alleged arbitrary detention, torture and disappearance of persons at Maharajgunj Barracks between 2003 and 2005. Throughout this period the barracks were under the control of the Bhairabnath Battalion, commanded by then Lieutenant Colonel Raju Basnet. In 2009, the NHRC also issued recommendations to the Government on the same case. The human rights community, including the NHRC, and OHCHR, has repeatedly called for a credible, competent, impartial and fully independent investigation into the alleged violations committed in Maharajgunj Barracks and other similar incidents which occurred during the conflict period in Nepal.
