16th Anniversary of the Killing of Muktinath Adhikari observed with an Interaction on Nepal's Current Transitional Justice Situation
Muktinath Adhikari Memorial Foundation and Amnesty International Nepal jointly organized an event on 17 January to mark the 16th anniversary of the killing of Muktinath Adhikari.
Adhikari, then headmaster of Panini Sanskrit High School, Duradada, Lamjung was brutally killed on 17 January 2002 by the Maoist cadres. He was dragged out of the classroom, taken half an hour's distance away from the school blindfolded, then tied up in a tree with his muffler, stabbed on his stomach and shot on head and chest.
An editorial follow-up of The Kathmandu Post to Amnesty International’s Press Release ‘Nepal: Migrant workers failed by government, exploited by businesses’
Dec 20, 2017-More than two years since the implementation of the ‘free visa, free ticket’ policy for out-migrant workers by the government, this scheme has been largely ignored by recruiting agencies. And the government is not doing enough to enforce it. Potential out-migrant workers continue to suffer from a lack of information and fall into numerous illegal traps.
Amnesty International Nepal submitted a letter to His Excellency Lasse Bjørn Johannessen, ambassador of Norway on 18 December sharing Amnesty International’s concern on the forcible returns of the Afghan asylum seekers from Norway and other European countries to Afghanistan where they face imminent threat to their lives and abuses of human rights. Amnesty Nepal also sent signatures of 63 Amnesty activists who had demonstrated before the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Kathmandu on Friday, 15 December.
Appeal for Action
What is happening to the Rohingya in Myanmar right now is planned, deliberate and targeted. It is the world’s fastest growing refugee crisis. It is ethnic cleansing.
We now know that at least 80 inhabited sites have been set alight by the Myanmar’s security forces and vigilante mobs, with massive fires. Entire villages have been burnt to the ground.
