Representative of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights
Abstract:
The rule of law is the foundation of protecting human rights, through the peace process and for the long­term in Nepal. There must be professional and effective policing by the state police force in districts across the country. The independence of the judicial system must be respected by government and all political actors. Both the police force and the judicial system must be adequately resourced. Impunity must be brought to an end if people are to trust in the rule of law. This means, nobody can be above the law. It also means that those responsible for the past serious must be brought to account. To build sustainable peace, action must be taken to clearly show that nobody can get away with human rights abuses in Nepal, least of all those in a position of power or tasked with responsibility to protect human rights. #SPEECH #LenaSundh
