ICJ submission on Nepal to the UN Human Rights Committee

The ICJ has submitted to the Human Rights Committee an alternative report in advance of the Committee’s examination of Nepal’s combined second, third and fourth periodic reports under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).

The ICJ submission draw’s the Committee’s attention to concerns related to:

  • The constitutional and legal framework implementing the ICCPR and the Committee’s decisions on complaints under the Optional Protocol to the ICCPR.
  • Impunity for human rights violations.
  • Freedom from torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment.

The Committee will examine Nepal’s reports during its 110th session held in March 2014, following which it will adopt Concluding Observations setting out recommendations to the Government of Nepal.
