Nepal: TRC to submit human rights violation report by Feb. 2017

Kathmandu : A Truth and Reconciliation Commission(TRC) appointed by the government plans to probe human rights violations from the decade-long armed conflict in Nepal within the next ten months.

The Commission would submit its final report to the government by the first half of February next year, reports The Himalayan Times.

The Commission presented its plan of action at a meeting of the Social Justice and Human Rights Committee of the Parliament today.

The mechanism plans to collect complaints on human rights violation during the war era, from April 17 to June 16, via District Peace Committee Secretariats.

Then, a probe committee involving experts would carry out a preliminary investigation into the complaints in next three months before launching a detailed investigation.

The detailed investigation process would last as long as six months.

The Commission published a public notice today requesting members of the public to register their complains on war-era human rights violation cases including murder, abduction and hostage, against humanity as per the international human rights and humanitarian laws.

Besides the Peace Committee Secretariat, complaints can also be filed via post box, email, phone or in person. (ANI)
