The committee releasing a press statement on September 7 said that the transitional justice process must follow international values and standards. It further demanded the transitional justice mechanism to be more victim-centric so that it can address grave human rights abuses and held the perpetrators accountable.
The committee has also urged government to give security of the victims and witnesses who were involved in the present case brought before the British Court.
