PDF File Size: 972 KB | Download   
The National Human Rights Commission was established under the Human Rights Commission Act of 1997. The Interim Constitution of Nepal of 2007 has mandated the Commission with wider responsibilities to receive the complaints against human rights and carry out necessary monitoring and investigation. The Commission, thereafter, forwards recommendations to the Government for necessary actions to the perpetrators and compensation or reparation to the victims or their families. The Commission has carried out significant works on the promotion and protection of human rights. This report, however, aims to cover particularly human rights related activities, legal counseling or policy related recommendations made over the period of ten years.During the past ten years the Commission passed through the insurgency period and primary attention was focused on the incidents of killing, violence, abduction, disappearance, displacement and property seizure etc. The Commission, however, has been making various recommendations consistently on the protection and promotion of economic, social and cultural rights as well. Aftermath scenario of conflict period exhausted with the chronic political instability in the country. Subsequently, apart from human rights awareness oriented programs, necessary accomplishments on the promotion of human rights could hardly be undertaken. Human rights are indispensable component for the development of economic, social and cultural development for raising qualitative life standard of the people and the foremost responsibility of this rests upon the Government of Nepal. Inadequate efforts in taking action against human rights violators, withdrawal of the cases filed at the court of law have given path to develop the culture of impunity. Such state of affairs is indeed disappointing and this has to end anyway. The Nepali proverb “Jasko Pap – Usko Gardan”(those commit crime would be subjected to slain by hacking the neck) is a symbolic norm of the Nepali judicial system. No one is above the law and therefore ministers can be held as accountable provided they become imprudent in such situation.
