The report examines how laws are used and abused to shield perpetrators from justice and to deny victims’ rights in Nepal. Five years after a peace agreement ended a decade-long armed conflict in Nepal – a conflict that saw thousands detained, disappeared, killed, raped and tortured – not one person has been properly brought to justice for the crimes committed. Successive governments have granted amnesties to many perpetrators. At a press conference in Kathmandu, REDRESS and Advocacy Forum, co-authors of the report, urged Nepalese legislators to change the laws to end impunity.
