PDF File Size: 276 KB | Download   
The International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) welcomes this opportunity to contribute to discussion of the human rights situation in Nepal, on the occasion of the adoption of its UPR outcome report by the Human Rights Council (HRC). In this submission, the ICJ highlights issues concerning: i) the new Constitution and human rights obligations therein; ii) impunity and transitional justice mechanisms; iii) ongoing human rights violations during the border protests and blockade; and iv) failure to criminalize serious international crimes. The submission notes continued non-implementation by the Government of Nepal (GoN) of international obligations relevant to many of the recommendations received during the current UPR cycle, including many that the GoN asserts are "already implemented or in the process of implementation", and others that are similar to recommendations Nepal already received during the 2011 UPR. It concludes with specific calls for further acceptance and implementation of the recommendations by GoN.
