PDF File Size: 63 KB | Download   
Following things have been considered:
1. The normative foundation for the work of the United Nations in advancing transitional justice is the United Nations Charter, the international human rights treaties to which Nepal is a party (international law), as well as a number of declarations, principles, and guidelines (international standards and principles)
2. The United Nations has consistently maintained the position that, in accordance with international laws and standards, it cannot condone or encourage amnesties for genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes or gross violations of human rights.The United Nation’s position regarding amnesties has been reaffirmed multiple times, including in the 2010 Guidance Note of the Secretary-General on United Nations Approach to Transitional Justice, and the Secretary General’s 2011 report on the rule of law and transitional justice. And so on.
