Public Consultations on TRC Bill Must Not Be Cut Short – OHCHR-Nepal
PDF File Size: 55 KB | Download   
OHCHR-Nepal is concerned that a Truth and Reconciliation Commission(TRC) might be established before essential, broad-based public consultations can be
completed. The Office has confirmed that the Ministry of Peace and Reconstruction is planning to submit draft legislation to Cabinet within weeks, a timetable which would not allow for adequate consultations. OHCHR-Nepal Representative Richard Bennett in a letter to the Ministry on Friday
emphasized that the process cannot be rushed, and that without broad nationwide
consultations of all stakeholders – including victims – there is a risk that the TRC established would be neither effective nor legitimate. OHCHR-Nepal urges the Ministry to delay submitting the draft bill and establishing
the commission, and encourages the Government to amend the 23-point agreement
signed by the political parties on 23 December if necessary to permit the
postponement. It also encourages the Government to design and implement a
comprehensive strategy for broad-based national consultations. The strategy should be designed with the input of experts and stakeholders such as human rights experts, victims’ representatives, community and religious leaders, academics, judges and experts on reconciliation.
