PDF File Size: 69 KB | Download   
The decision taken today by King Gyanendra of Nepal to dismiss the Government of Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba and to assume direct power.I also understand that a state of emergency has been declared, and that the members of the cabinet are under house arrest.Nepal is already in the midst of a human rights crisis, which has been compounded compounded in recent years by the absence of a parliament democratically elected Government. Democracy offers the most conducive environment for the promotion and protection of human rights in any country.his Proclamation to the Nation yesterday, King Gyanendra emphasized his "belief that upholding human rights not only preserves and promotes democratic values but also enhances the way of life and civilization values commensurate with the twenty-first century". When I met the King during my visit to Nepal last week, he reaffirmed his unequivocal commitment to human rights, democracy and multiparty rule. Along with all other friends of Nepal I now look to His Majesty to live up to his stated commitment to these fundamental principles, and ensure that the democratic institutions of the State are reinstalled without delay. Nepal's vibrant civil society, especially its human rights defenders and media, play a crucial role in the country's quest for democracy. Their ability to continue their indispensable work, freely and safely, must be ensured.
