End the Haliya system in Nepal say the NHRC, NDC, NWC and UN
PDF File Size: 142 KB | Download   
Although the September 2008 agreement between the Government of Nepal and Federation of National Haliya Liberation Society formally declared the liberation of Haliyas, tangible outcomes have yet to be achieved. The draft Haliya Prohibition Bill has not been passed, and the Government has yet to form the high level Haliya Emancipation and Rehabilitation Commission as agreed, or to publicize the results of the survey of Haliyas in Nepal”, stated a press statement released today by National Human Rights Commission, National Dalit Commission, National Women Commission and two UN agencies, the International Labour Organisation and the UN Human Rights Office in Nepal.“Three years after signing of the agreement, freed Haliyas have yet to receive promised relief
and rehabilitation, and have yet to be issued with identity cards.Consequently, the freed Haliyas continue to face difficulty in accessing basic needs including food, shelter and health services, thus forcing them to live in often deplorable conditions. This has a particular impact on the families of the Haliyas including women and children. The lack of access to alternative
livelihoods - as promised in the agreement - has also compelled many Haliyas to continue as bonded labourers with their former landlords”, the press statement continues.
