Letter to Attorney General Raman Kumar Shrestha

Expressing concern over the Kavre District Public Prosecutor's decision not to appeal the acquittal of one of the alleged perpetrators in the murder of Maina Sunuwar, Amnesty International and International Commission of Jurists have jointly urged the Attorney General Raman Kumar Shrestha to review the decision and pursue the appeal against the Kavre district court.  "A failure to pursue criminal accountability against Major Niranjan Basnet, based on the reasoning as set out in the district court judgment , would likely lead to a denial of justice and a perpetuation of the culture of impunity that has plagued  Nepal in the conflict and post -conflict years" states the letter sent to Mr. Shrestha.

२०७४ वैशाख १२ मा एम्नेस्टी इन्टरनेसनल (एम्नेस्टी)ले “असमानता खडा गर्दै”: भूकम्प पछिको पुनर्निर्माणमा सीमान्तकृतहरूको संरक्षण गर्न नेपाल सरकारको विफलता नामक प्रतिवेदन सार्वजनिक गयो । यो प्रतिवेदनले भूकम्प पछिको नेपालमा आवासको अधिकारको बारेमा विश्लेषण गरेको छ । साथै राष्ट्रिय पुनर्निर्माण प्रयासहरूले सीमान्तकृत समूहरूको विशेष आवश्यकताहरूलाई कसरी संवोधन गर्न सकिरहेको छैन भन्ने बारेमा यो प्रतिवेदन केन्द्रित रहेको छ । यो अनुसन्धानले दोलखा जिल्लालाई केस स्टडीको रूपमा लिएको थियो र यस क्रममा सन् २०१६ को मार्च र नोभेम्वरमा गरी दुईवटा विस्तृत अनुसन्धान भ्रमण गरी झण्डै २०० भूकम्प उत्तरजीवीहरूका साथै ३८ सरकारी अधिकारीहरूसँग अन्तर्वार्ता गरिएको थियो । 

भूकम्प उत्तरजीवीहरूको वासस्थान र जीवन पुनर्निर्माण गर्न सहयोग गर्ने सवालमा नेपाल सरकारका सामु भएको ठूलो जिम्मेवारीलाई एम्नेस्टी स्वीकार्दछ । तथापि, एम्नेस्टीले नीतिगत र कार्यान्वयन तहमा केही सवालहरू रहेको पाएको छ ।

As shells exploded around their home in a besieged neighborhood of Ta'iz, Yemen, brothers Yahia and Maher, then age 16 and 18, took shelter beneath the staircase.

Here they remained for three days, with a dwindling supply of food and water. As dawn broke on the fourth day they made a run for it, dodging gunfire. "Bullets were hitting close to their feet as they ran," their mother, Fatima, a green card holder, told Amnesty crisis interviewers. "Luckily they were not injured."
