Abstract:
This press release includes report about the torture and death of 15 ­year ­old Maina Sunuwar, who died in the custody of the (Royal) Nepalese Army (NA) in February 2004 at the Birendra Peace Operations Training Centre in Panchkhal Kavrepalanchowk District. The copy of the report obtained by OHCHR ­Nepal summarises the investigations by the Court of Inquiry Board, including statements by NA personnel acknowledging their participation in the torture of Maina Sunuwar. OHCHR maintains that it is essential that the criminal investigation by civilian authorities into the death of Maina Sunuwar, including a proper exhumation, be completed ­ both to provide accountability for Maina Sunuwar’s death and to deter future human rights violations.There is still an opportunity for the Government to demonstrate to the Nepali people and the international community that it is serious about ending impunity by holding human rights violators accountable for their actions. #TORTURE #INCIDENT #DEATH #CUSTODY #SECURITY #INQUIRY #LACKOFTRANSPARENCY #MAINASUNUWAR #KAVREPALANCHOWK #NEPALESEARMY
