Human Rights Watch and Advocacy Forum say that failure to prosecute those responsible for conflict-era crimes is enabling fresh abuses in Nepal

KATHMANDU, Nov 3: The Nepal government should act without delay to carry out the National Human Rights Commission’s recommendations, particularly those concerning Nepal’s obligation to investigate and, where justified by the evidence, prosecute those accused of serious abuses, Human Rights Watch (HRW) and the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), the two leading international human rights bodies, said on Tuesday.
