ICJ to govt: Provide justice to victims of disappearances
REPUBLICA
KATHMANDU, Aug 29: International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) has renewed its call on the Nepali authorities to provide justice to hundreds of victims of enforced disappearances during the decade-long armed conflict in Nepal.

Issuing a statement on the eve of the annual International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances, the ICJ alleged that members of both the state security forces and the Maoist insurgents engaged in widespread human rights abuses, many of which constitute crimes under international law. “It has been eight years since the end of the armed conflict, but even now the fate and whereabouts of more than a thousand possible victims of enforced disappearance are unknown and perpetrators have still not been brought to justice,” the statement quoted ICJ’s Regional Director for Asia and the Pacific Sam Zarifi as saying.   [More]
