UN Human Rights Office raises serious concerns with the term extension of Colonel Raju Basnet
PDF File Size: 196 KB | Download   
OHCHR has recommended that state personnel for whom there are credible allegations of involvement in human rights violations should be suspended pending proper investigations. “The extension in tenure of Colonel Raju Basnet together with the absence of any concrete step to initiate a proper investigation into the alleged human rights violations committed at Maharajgunj Barracks is a backward step in ensuring justice for the victims of conflict related human rights violations” said Anthony Cardon, OIC of OHCHR-Nepal.
OHCHR urges the Government of Nepal to reconsider its decision in this matter and to ensure that no further such decisions regarding extension in tenures or promotions of officials implicated in such cases are taken until the completion of full, transparent and impartial investigations.
