Publishing a report on 20 October 2014 (3 Kartik 2071),
International has called on the South Korean government to end the
exploitation and widespread use of forced labour of migrant agricultural
workers. The report "Bitter Harvest" reveals how the country’s farming
industry is rife with abuse.
The report exposes the true face of
South Korea’s Employment Permit System (EPS) that directly contributes
to the serious exploitation of migrant agricultural workers. The
government-run work scheme is designed to provide migrant labour to
small and medium-sized enterprises that struggle to hire a sufficient
number of national workers.
The recent and tragic death of Nanda Prasad Adhikari, on hunger strike demanding justice for the death of his son, highlights again the Nepali authorities’ failure to ensure accountability for grave conflict-era human rights abuses, Amnesty International Nepal said. Issuing a press statement on 28 September 2014 (12 Ashoj 2071) Amnesty International Nepal expressed its concern over the death of Nanda Prasad Adhikari and lack of accountability of the state authorities.

On the day of completion of a
year of National Human Rights Commission without Commissioners, Amnesty
International issued a press statement on 16 September 2014. The Nepali government’s failure to appoint new
commissioners to the Nepal Human Rights Commission (NHRC) for a year, leaving
the body leaderless and unable to carry out its mandate, shows a deeply
disappointing lack of commitment to human rights and transitional justice,
Amnesty International said.
