The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for human rights in Nepal.Summary of Concerns entitled Investigating Allegations of Extra-Judicial Killings.there were credible allegations of unlawful use of lethal force by security forces.recognizes that since the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in November 2006, one of the greatest challenges for the Government of nepal has been to maintain public security. the Office supports government efforts to counter criminal activity, increase public security and enhance respect for the law, but stresses that these initiatives should be consistent with international human rights standards and the Interim Constitution. OHCHR believes that this is an especially important moment in the peace process in Nepal to address the human rights implications of special security operations,and to establish as swiftly as possible an independent mechanism, such as a police complaints commission or special unit, to investigate allegations of wrongdoing committed by State actors.he information collected also suggests that in many cases of counterintelligence killings', police operations could have led to an apprehension, rather than death. It also shows that, in most cases, no thorough and impartial investigations or criminal prosecutions have been undertaken.The Summary attempts to identify problems of law, policy and practice that contribute to persistent allegations of extra-judicial killings, and the failure to fully investigate such allegations.the recommendations have been developed in consultation with or building upon the work of partners including the National Human Rights Commission , the Office of the Attorney General, members of civil society organizations, and police personnel at the regional and district levels.
