International Commission of Jurists sends letter to the Prime Minister of Nepal

The ICJ sent a letter to the Prime Minister of Nepal, urging the Government to suspend the promotion of Major General Toran Bahadur Singh.

His promotion should be suspended until a credible, impartial and independent investigation is conducted into his alleged responsibility for systematic violations of human rights and humanitarian law committed by military units under his command, especially during the civil conflict in 2003‐4.
