OHCHR-Nepal has consistently urged restraint upon both demonstrators and security forces. It has been present at demonstrations in the Kathmandu Valley, Biratnagar, Pokhara and Nepalgunj. In some situations it has witnessed restraint being exercised by security forces in the face of provocation and violence by demonstrators. At other times OHCHR-Nepal has observed individual police officers restrain their colleagues from excessive force against demonstrators.
OHCHR-Nepal monitoring teams have communicated with senior police officers present at demonstrations, in efforts to have them ensure that police meet their obligations in using only the necessary and proportional force. In some instances, officers have been encouraged by OHCHR-Nepal’s presence to intervene to check cases of excessive use of force. However, in a number of instances senior officers have refused or failed to control their officers from violence and excessive use of force.
