PDF File Size: 38 KB | Download   
The report covers the events of April 2006.It describes the nature of the demonstrations, the response of the Government and security forces and the types of human rights violations which took place, as well as the question of accountability for these violations. There are 15 detailed case studies, focusing on the deaths which occurred in the context of the demonstrations.

Throughout the 19 days of protests, in spite of many constraints, OHCHR-Nepal monitored the conduct of the security forces and demonstrators to assess whether the response of the Nepal Police (NP), Armed Police Force (APF) and Nepal Army (NA, known at the time as the RNA, Royal Nepalese Army) was
necessary and proportionate. OHCHR-Nepal also carried detailed investigations into the use of force in specific cases which occurred during the 19 days of demonstrations.
