United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour announced today the appointment of Ian Martin as head of new Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights(OHCHR) operation in Nepal.

Mr. Martin has some 30 years of experience in the field of human rights, both with nongovernmental organizations and as a representative of the United Nations. He served as the Secretary General of Amnesty International from 1986 to 1992 and went on to play a central role in several international missions. He was the human rights director of the United Nations/Organization of American States Mission to Haiti in 1993 and 1995, and served as Chief
of the United Nations Human Rights Field Operation in Rwanda from 1995 to 1996. He was Deputy High Representative for Human Rights in Bosnia and Herzegovina from 1998 to 1999. Most recently, he served as the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the UN Mission in East Timor in 1999, and from 2000 to 2001 as the Deputy Special Representative to the Secretary-General for the UN Mission to Ethiopia and Eritrea. He was also Special Adviser to the High Commissioner in Sudan, strengthening the UN's human rights presence in Darfur. He is presently the Vice-President of the New York-based human rights
NGO, the International Center for Transitional Justice.
