OHCHR­Nepal will work with the incoming Government, and civil society organisations representing marginalised communities in Nepal, to assist in the development of measures
that can begin to eliminate discrimination in Nepal.
OHCHR­Nepal is also focusing on two other crucial issues in the transitional period that we believe must be addressed in order to ensure that there will be no human rights abuses in Nepal in the future.
Firstly, impunity must be ended, especially for serious human rights abuses. Those who hold positions of power and public responsibility must be accountable to the public, not least State security forces. It is essential to create a new culture within the security forces, including any new or reformed security forces, of being accountable before the law, to ensure that there is no repetition of human rights violations. During the conflict, serious abuses were committed by both sides, and there will be dangerous consequences for future human rights protection if these are merely swept under the carpet – supposedly in the interests of peace. In particular the whereabouts of all those who disappeared must be clarified and those responsible held accountable.
