NHRC’s 8-point recommendations to govt for protection and promotion of human rights
The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has underscored the protection and promotion of human rights for which it has furnished 8-point recommendations to the government quoting RSS.
Unveiling a report titled ’12 years of signing of Comprehensive Peace Agreement’ marking the 12 years of signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), NHRC suggested the government for the effective implementation of the economic, social and cultural rights of the people if the State is to address human rights issues and promote sustainable peace.
CPA was signed between then government and then CPN-Maoist party in November 22, 2006, marking an end to the decade long insurgency in the country. More than 17,000 persons-both from the State and insurgents-had lost their lives during the period.
The report suggested government to hold consultations with the conflict-victims as well as the stakeholders and make amendments in the laws related to addressing the issues surrounding conflict-victims.
Furthermore, the government is recommended to formulate plans and programmes for justice, reparations and rehabilitation of the conflict-victims by considering amendments in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Act-2071.
As for addressing the issues of those fallen prey to sexual abuse and gender-based violence during the conflict, the report suggests government to devise plans, programmes and laws securing their welfare. Stringent implementation of the International Conventions signed by Nepal seeking to discourage enrollment of child soldiers in the conflicts and wars has been recommended.
Moreover, the government has been urged to take into account those suffering mental and physical disability in the conflict to address the issues of conflict victims.
