Enforced disappearance was one of the most serious violations of human rights and
humanitarian law committed during the decade-long conflict in Nepal, and one of the
violations with the broadest impact.
We have some idea of the scale of the problem. The National Human Rights
Commission today, based on complaints they received, released a figure of 970
disappeared persons. The ICRC and the Nepal Red Cross Society have published
the names of more than 1200 people reported as missing by their relatives between
1996 and 2006
