7 February, Kathmandu-The Representative of the UN High Commissioner for
Human Rights in Nepal(OHCHR-Nepal), Richard Bennett, on the occasion of the sixth anniversary of the torture and killing of Maina Sunuwar by members of the armed forces called upon the Government to enforce the arrest warrants against the four suspects issued more than two years ago. He urged the Army to cooperate with ongoing judicial proceedings and police investigations, and to comply with requests to turn the remaining suspect in service over to the Nepal Police so that he can be produced before the Kavre District Court. On 17 February 2004, 15-year-old Maina Sunuwar was tortured and killed on the
grounds of the Birendra Peace Operations Training Centre in Panchkal. In September 2007 the Supreme Court ordered that the case must be investigated and brought before the Kavre District Court. In 2008, criminal charges were filed and arrest warrants for four suspects were issued but never executed.
