KATHMANDU, Jan 27: A group of dissident conflict victims on Saturday formed the Conflict Victims' National Alliance for Justice (CVNAJ). A meeting of the conflict victims gathered from across the country has named Geeta Rasaili as the head of CVNAJ. 

The organization has said it would press the government and stakeholders to ensure justice to conflict victims. Phanindra Luitel is the general secretary of the newly formed body while Sabitri Shrestha is the vice-chairperson and Sabirti Khadka is secretary. 

The gathering has also named provincial chiefs of the organization. This is second body of conflict victims. The Conflict Victim's Common Platform (CVPC) is already in existence since a long time and has been raising voice for justice. 

The new organization of conflict victims has been formed at a time when the government is preparing for nation-wide consultation with stakeholders before finalizing the laws related to transitional justice.
