The UN Human Rights Office (OHCHR) in Nepal has ceased all new substantive work as of 8 December 2011, on account of termination of the agreement between the Government of Nepal and OHCHR. As the Office is now in the process of wrapping up its activities and handing over its work OHCHR’s website in Nepal will no longer be updated; it will merely serve as a “web resource” site.


UN concerned over recent Govt. decisions to appoint, pardon and promote alleged perpetrators of human rights violations


KATHMANDU – 10 November 2011 – The United Nations Human Rights Office in Nepal (OHCHR-Nepal) today expressed concern over a series of recent decisions by the Government of Nepal to appoint, promote or pardon public officials implicated in serious crimes and human rights abuses in Nepal. Such decisions, taken in relation to both senior politicians and officials of Nepal’s security forces, undermine efforts to address impunity in the country, and taint recent positive progress on the peace process.
