OHCHR-Nepal Urges Parties To Re-commit To Human Rights During Critical Phase Of Peace Process
PDF File Size: 61 KB | Download   
OHCHR-Nepal is extremely concerned about recent killings and other serious human rights violations during this fragile period prior to the swearing-in of the Constituent Assembly. Respect for human rights and accountability for those who commit crimes is essential if impunity in Nepal is not to be perpetuated.
Law enforcement is the duty of the state. OHCHR encourages all concerned parties to cooperate fully with Police investigations into alleged crimes, including the abduction and killing earlier this month of Ram Hari Shrestha, reportedly in a cantonment of the Maoist Army in Chitwan. OHCHR deplores the Shrestha killing and has received assurances from the leadership of the CPN-M that they will cooperate with all authorized investigations.
