OHCHR Urges CPN-M To Cooperate With Reintegration Of Minors Associated With Armed Forces And Armed Groups
PDF File Size: 96 KB | Download   
OHCHR-Nepal is concerned about the growing number of reports from various districts that the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN-M) and associated organizations have coerced or forced persons who were under 18 years old at the time of their recruitment to return to cantonment sites of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) after they had voluntarily left the camps. Forcing or pressuring young people under 18 to return to cantonment sites violates the rights of children, as well as the commitment made by the CPN-M, and the Government of Nepal, in the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) to immediately release minors who had been associated with a fighting force, and to provide “necessary and proper cooperation” for their rehabilitation and reintegration.
