OHCHR-Nepal Calls For Swift Implementation Of Supreme Court Ruling On Dhanusha Disappearance
PDF File Size: 14 KB | Download   
OHCHR-Nepal welcomes the Supreme Court’s decision in the case of the enforced
disappearances of five students in Dhanusha District in October 2003. At a 2
February hearing on writ petitions filed in August 2007, the Supreme Court ordered
the Nepal Police to register First Information Reports, and proceed with
investigations into the disappearances. The Nepal Police has previously refused to register FIRs in the cases, which name senior civil, police and military officials, and include details of a possible grave site identified more than two years ago. The Nepal Police has yet to request forensic assistance to conduct exhumations at the site. Both OHCHR and the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) have been following the cases closely. In January 2008, the NHRC recommended a full investigation and compensation to the families.
