First, on behalf of OHCHR, I would like to extend heartfelt congratulations to the NHRC on the occasion of your 8th anniversary. Over a period of little more than 12 months some important steps have been taken to place the Commission on a sound footing: it has been recognized as a constitutional body in the Interim Constitution; a draft law spelling out the Commission’s specific functions and powers under the constitution is in progress; new Commissioners have been appointed and have begun their important work; it has regained its ‘A’ status among its peers at the International Coordinating Committee of National Institutions for the Protection and Promotion of Human Rights, and it has almost completed a new 3-year strategic plan. These developments will assist the Commission in undertaking its formidable tasks as Nepal enters a new phase in its transition towards a society that I hope will embrace human rights as the cornerstone of its new democracy.
