New Report Reviews State of Crime and Punishment in Nepal
December 1, 2010
After Nepal’s peace process began in 2006, ending a decades-long civil war, the Nepali state has become weak, a result of the compromises made by the major political actors for the sake of peace and the inability to swiftly conclude the process, according to “Impunity in Nepal: A study of Excesses during the Transition,” a new report published by the Center for Investigative Journalism in Kathmandu, with support from The Asia Foundation.
Although the Comprehensive Peace Accord was signed in November 2006, it still has not been fully implemented, with both the government and the former rebels (Maoists) failing to fulfill their commitments – resulting in political uncertainty and increased lawlessness. This report, conducted by prominent investigative journalists, examines incidents of violence during Nepal’s conflict and examines some of the country’s emerging conflicts and their violent nature.
