PDF File Size: 669 KB | Download   
Nepal Conflict Report 2012 is an analysis of conflict-related violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law between February 1996 and 21 November 2006. This Report documents and analyses the major categories of conflict-related violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law that allegedly took place in Nepal from February 1996 to 21 November 2006. The cases and data presented in the Report
come from the Transitional Justice Reference Archive (TJRA), a database of approximately 30,000 documents and cases sourced from the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), national and international NGOs and from OHCHR’s own monitoring work in the country following establishment of its country office in Nepal in May 2005. This data archive was developed by OHCHR with the support of the United Nations Peace Fund for Nepal. The TJRA is an information management tool that allows for elaborated research into the incidents recorded in it and should be considered to be an indispensable partner to this Report.The aim of this Report and the TJRA is to contribute to a lasting foundation for peace in Nepal by advancing the transitional justice process. In each of the categories of violations documented in this report (unlawful killings, disappearances, torture, arbitrary arrests and sexual violence), OHCHR has found that there exists a credible allegation amounting to a reasonable basis for suspicion of a violation of international law. These cases therefore merit prompt, impartial, independent and effective investigation, followed by the consideration of a full judicial process. The establishment of transitional justice mechanisms in full compliance with international standards are an important part of this process, but should complement criminal processes and not be an alternative to them.
