PDF File Size: 106 KB | Download   
On the occasion of the fourth anniversary of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) released a fact-sheet entitled 'Key Human Rights Commitments of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement and their Implementation over the Last Four Years'. The facts-sheet highlights the key human rights commitments under the CPA and their status of implementation by both parties to the CPA.In its fact-sheet, the NHRC noted some of the positive steps undertaken so far, including the work done on draft bills for the establishment of Transitional Justice Mechanisms - Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and Commission of Inquiry on Disappearances. However, it also deplores an overall disappointing level of non-implementation of the human rights commitments under the CPA.
