Proposed Measure Contravenes International Law

Nepal: Reject Draft Truth and Reconciliation Bill

Nepali legislators should reject problematic provisions of the proposed Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) bill introduced in parliament on April 9, 2014, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and the International Commission of Jurists said on 17 April 2014. Despite a January 2 directive from the Nepali Supreme Court that the law must meet international legal standards, the bill contains provisions for amnesty that violate international law.

In a joint statement they said-'In particular, the bill retains language from a 2012 executive ordinance that permitted amnesty for crimes under international law committed during Nepal’s civil war. A landmark Supreme Court ruling rejected the ordinance, and explicitly directed the government to introduce a new bill in compliance with Nepal’s obligations under international law. Amnesty for gross human rights violations, such as those enumerated in the bill, is prohibited by international law.

Appeal for Action

Take Action Now

पाठेघर खस्ने समस्या मानवअधिकारको सवाल हो भनी नेपाल सरकारका तर्फबाट सार्वजनिक रुपमा स्वीकार गरियोस् ।

नेपालमा छ लाख भन्दा बढी महिलाहरू पाठेघर (आङ्ग) खस्ने समस्याबाट ग्रसित छन् । यस्तो दुःखदायी र दर्दनाक अवस्थाका कारण प्रत्येक दिन महिलाहरूले अनावश्यक बोझ र समस्या भोग्नु परिरहेको छ । लैङ्गिक विभेद नै नेपाली महिला र युवतीहरूमा बढ्दो पाठेघर खस्ने समस्याको विद्यमान कारण र परिणाम दुवै हुन् ।

अरु देशको तुलनामा नेपालमा यौवन अवस्थामा नै महिलाहरूमा यस्तो अवस्था देखा पर्ने गरेको छ । यसरी कम उमेरमै यो समस्या हुनुको प्रमुख कारण उनीहरुमाथि निरन्तर तवरले हुने लैङ्गिक विभेद नै हो । पाठेघर खस्ने समस्याको प्रमुख कारणको रुपमा रहेको लैङ्गिक विभेद मानव अधिकारको सवाल हो ।
