Transitional Justice Mechanism Cannot Provide Amnesty For Serious Human Right Violations And War Crimes
PDF File Size: 102 KB | Download   
The establishment of a transitional justice mechanism empowered to provide amnesty for the perpetrators of serious human rights violations and war crimes is contrary to Nepal’s commitments under international law. The adoption of the proposed ordinance currently with the President could severely undermine access to justice for victims, and potentially further institutionalize impunity.I urge that the establishment of transitional justice mechanisms is done in compliance with international human rights standards and best practices, as reiterated by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the National Human Rights Commission as well as Nepali and international human rights organizations.
