Alternative Report of the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) to the UN Human Rights Committee on the Combined Second, Third and Fourth Periodic Reports of Nepal Under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights
PDF File Size: 318 KB | Download   
In the present submission, the ICJ expresses concern about the failure of the authorities to meet its obligations under Article 2(3) of the Covenant to ensure effective remedies for violations of Covenant rights, including those gross violations of human rights and international humanitarian law, which occurred in the context of the conflict. A complex web of constitutional and statutory immunities, measures taken by the government in defiance of court rulings and inaction thwart efforts to investigate serious violations of Covenant rights, prosecute and punish those responsible for the crimes that those violations entail1 and facilitate impunity. Notwithstanding reports of thousands of alleged serious violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law committed during the decade long conflict (up to 9,000 of which were examined in the OHCHR sponsored Nepal Conflict.2) as of February 2014 only a few cases involving serious conflict-related crime have been filed in a civilian court in Nepal.
