On the Occasion of International Day of the Disappeared
PDF File Size: 26 KB | Download   
On the occasion of International Day of the Disappeared OHCHR-Nepal renews its call to all parties to take steps to clarify the fate or whereabouts of, and establish accountability for, the hundreds of Nepali people who disappeared in the context of the armed conflict.

Cases which remain unclarified in Nepal today include the torture and disappearance of a group of over 40 detainees from Maharajgunj Army barracks in Kathmandu in 2003-2004, as documented in OHCHR-Nepal’s May 2006 report. The Government has not yet responded to this report and its recommendations. Some communities have been especially affected by disappearances, and OHCHR-Nepal is focusing investigations on over 100 cases of disappearances from 2002-2003 in Bardiya District. A large majority of those who disappeared are members of the Tharu community.
