It is important that the voices and concerns raised by victims’ groups will be genuinely heard and reflected in the draft Constitution as it evolves.
I have noticed that you are also going to discuss rule of law and transitional justice issues in coming sessions and I would like to make a few points in this regard. As you are aware, in recent years a number of special commissions have been established to investigate serious human rights violations and crimes in Nepal. Unfortunately, most of the reports of these commissions have not been made public and there have been no visible consequences for the alleged perpetrators. OHCHR has long been supporting the fight against such impunity, in order to ensure that those responsible for human rights violations are held accountable for them.
