Peace agreement fails if conflict victims are denied of justice
The stakeholders in a program said that if conflict victims are denied of justice, even after 10 years of signing of CPA, the peace agreement will be in vain.

Speaking at the program, INSEC chairperson Subodh Raj Pyakurel stressed on bringing those into legal boundary who were involved in a serious humanitarian crime. He added that to establish truth, a law to reconcile truth is needed and said that such law must be within international norms.
He said that in a decision to reconcile the truth, consensus among victims, society and court is essential. He added that without the rule of law, the victims cannot feel the justice.
Former commissioner of NHRC and Professor Kapil Shrestha said that the peace agreement has invited crisis despite of creating a society of faith.
