an Martin said: "I am dismayed that these arbitrary detentions are going into a third month, and appeal again to His Majesty’s Government to restore the right to liberty and the rights to freedom of expression, association and peaceful assembly to these individuals. Following my visits to Brussels, Geneva and New York, I was able to inform the detainees of the deep and widespread concern of the international community regarding the renewed resort to arbitrary political imprisonment in Nepal. In my meetings in these places, I drew attention to the fact that whenever the legality of such detentions has been challenged in a Nepalese court, it has found them to be without justification and therefore unlawful. It is clearly contrary to the rule of law for the State to rely on the fact that individual detentions have not been challenged before a court to persist in arbitrary detention in violation of Nepal's own law and Constitution, as well as of Nepal's binding international human rights obligations, or to make any further use of arbitrary arrest to inhibit peaceful protest."
