Submission for the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Nepal

Today, the ICJ made a submission to the Universal Periodic Review of Nepal.

The submission brings to the attention of the members of the Human Rights Council’s Working Group issues concerning:

  • The establishment of credible transitional justice mechanisms;
  • The need to reform Nepali criminal law to ensure that certain serious crimes under international law are fully criminalized domestically;
  • The on-going need to address the countless incidents of sexual violence committed during the armed conflict;
  • The need to take steps to end impunity; and,
  • The right to an effective remedy.
