Abstract:
268 individuals who joined the Maoist army as minors, and late recruits, re-entered civilian life here today after more than three years in a Maoist cantonment site. In all, 2,394 young men and women who joined the Maoist army as minors, and late recruits, have been discharged in seven cantonments across Nepal in the past month. A total of 2,973 individuals were disqualified from the Maoist army as minors in a United Nations verification process that ended in December2007. About 500 of them are still under 18 years today, and 15 are under 16. Another group of 1,035 were disqualified because they were recruited after the ceasefire in May 2006 that ended 10 years of armed conflict. Roughly one-third of the total number disqualified are female.The conclusion of the discharge process is a positive step in Nepal’s peace process at a time when building confidence and trust amongst the parties is all-important,” said Representative of the Secretary-General in Nepal, Karin Landgren.
