Human Rights Council: ICJ written statement on Nepal

The ICJ made a written statement on Nepal to the Human Rights Council during its 19th session in Geneva. 

More than five years since the end of the armed conflict in Nepal, international monitoring mechanisms established to scrutinise progress in the peace process in the country have effectively ceased to function, despite the failure to conclude the peace process and establish the agreed-upon transitional justice mechanisms.

The ICJ statement focuses on amnesty provisions in transitional justice legislation; proposed pardons, and the appointment of alleged rights violator to Government; and lack of investigations and withdrawal of cases.
