Remedies And Rights Revoked: Impunity Through Case Withdrawals (23rd June)
PDF File Size: 60 KB | Download   
The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and the United Nations Human Rights Office in Nepal (OHCHR-Nepal) today released a Legal Opinion paper entitled “Remedies and Rights Revoked: Case Withdrawals for Serious Crimes in Nepal”. Drawing on Nepal’s binding national and international legal obligations, the joint paper outlines the Government’s responsibility to investigate and prosecute human rights violations that constitute serious crimes under national and international law as well as to provide effective remedies for those found to have suffered abuse. However, instead many of these cases have been withdrawn by the Government on the basis of political decisions and calculations.
