The Haliya bonded labour slavery system must be abolished without further delay:
1. In view of the interactive dialogue with the Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of slavery during the 15th Session of the Human Rights Council (HRC), the Asian Legal Resource Centre (ALRC) and Nepalese NGO the Jagaran Media Center, wish to highlight the situation of bonded labour that persists in Nepal to date. This modern form of slavery, known as the Haliya system, currently affects an estimated 150’000 people in the country and has persisted for hundreds of years. The Haliya system, which must be viewed as a form of slavery, is especially prevalent in the western part of Nepal, more specifically in the districts of Dhangadi, Dadeldhura, Doti, Bajura, and Bajhang.
