Putting The Record Straight- UN Support To The Verified Minors And Late Recruits From The Maoist Cantonments - Robert Piper
PDF File Size: 62 KB | Download   
In light of the recent disruptions caused by a small minority of ex-Maoist army combatants already discharged from the cantonments, it could be useful to set the record straight on what has happened since early 2010 when the Maoist leadership agreed to discharge this first group. With the signing of the Agreement on the Monitoring of the Management of Arms and Armies (AMMAA) in November 2006, the Government, the Seven Party Alliance and the Maoist party agreed on the criteria for establishing who should and should not remain in the cantonments. Individuals were deemed ineligible for any future integration or rehabilitation programmes on the basis of either(a) having been under the age of 18 years when the ceasefire agreement was signed in May 2006, and thus having been recruited to the Maoist army contrary to international law, or (b) having joined the Maoist army after the ceasefire was signed. Hence these individuals have been called Verified Minors and Late Recruits or ‘VMLR’ for short. UNMIN was responsible for verifying which individuals fell into
which category — a complex task particularly given that few of those eventually deemed a VMLR offered this information willingly. Final approval of the verification list was provided by the Joint Monitoring and Coordination Committee made up by the Nepal Army and the Maoist army under the chairmanship of UNMIN.
