United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour announced today the appointment of Lena Sundh as head of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal (OHCHR­ Nepal) and her Representative in the country. Ms Sundh, a Swedish national, will take up her position in the coming weeks, for a period of six months.

The High Commissioner said her Office was fortunate to benefit from Ms Sundh’s
considerable international and human rights experience during this most important period in Nepal’s transition to peace. “The Seven Party Alliance Government and the CPN­ Maoist have made it clear that they seek the support of my Office in the protection and promotion of human rights during the peace process. I am confident that with Ms Sundh’s leadership OHCHR will continue its role in strongly defending human rights in Nepal through this sensitive and critical period,” she said.
