Fourth Anniversary of The CPA: Non-Implementation of Human Rights Commitments Jeopardizes Peace Process: NHRC, OHCHR
PDF File Size: 46 KB | Download   
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. The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal (OHCHR) joins hands with the NHRC in calling on the Government of Nepal and the Unified Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (UCPNM) not to delay further the translation of key human rights commitments into concrete measures. Human rights were considered essential elements of the CPA and failure to take these concrete measures may jeopardize the ongoing peace process.
