The purpose of this briefing is to make available to you the reports of two investigations by OHCHR Nepal.The report of our investigation into Attacks against public transportation in Chitwan and Kabhre palanchok Districts deplores the loss of life and injury caused by these attacks and emphasizes the primary responsibility of the CPN (Maoist) for the killing of civilians in both cases which were in violation of international humanitarian law.The report of our investigation into the Killing of civilians in Banbehda condemns the violent abduction, abuse and murder of three women, two men and a one-year-old child. The OHCHR is unable to reach a conclusion as to the identity of the perpetrators, but notes that the acts suggest a level of premeditation and organization and an ability to carry them out brazenly, in the immediate vicinity of an RNA base. In addition to urging the police to continue its own criminal investigation, our report calls upon the CPN
(Maoist) to conduct an enquiry, at the initiative of its leadership, to establish whether any of its local cadres were involved in the Banbehda killings and to make its findings public.University in order to see whether there is evidence of violations of international humanitarian law. National Human Rights Commission about how we can best cooperate and how OHCHR can best fulfill its mandate to advise and assist the
Commission. And I would like to conclude by expressing my respect and appreciation for
human rights defenders throughout the country, whose cooperation is vital to OHCHR’s
own work and whose courage and dedication are the most important long-term guarantee
of human rights protection in Nepal.
