The Asian Legal Resource Centre (ALRC), along with the Terai Human Rights Defenders (THRD) Alliance, would like to bring the entrenched practice of custodial torture in Nepal to the attention of the UN Human Rights Council. In relation to the decade-long conflict period from 1996 to 2006, the Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel,
inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, following a visit to Nepal in September 2005, concluded, inter alia, that “Torture is systematically practice by the police, armed police and Royal Nepalese Army. Legal safeguards are routinely ignored and effectively meaningless. Impunity for acts of torture is the rule, and consequently victims of torture and their families are left without recourse to adequate justice, compensation and rehabilitation.
