MoFA’s Attention Drawn To Ratify Rome Statue

KATHMANDU: The team of the Human Rights and Peace Society (HURPES) has drawn the attention of the Minister of Foreign Affairs Pradeep Kumar Gyawali to immediately ratify the International Criminal Court’s Rome Statute.
In the meeting held at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Singha Durbar today, Society’s President Uttam Pudasaini-led team demanded Nepal’s endorsement of the Statute at the earliest.
In response, Minister Gyawali said that the positive environment was being created lately for the same and there was no doubt that Nepal would not uphold the values of the Statute, HURPES President Pudasaini quoted Minister Gyawali as saying.
Furthermore, the Minister asked the Society to make more efforts towards convincing the progresses and developments following the ratification of the Statute.
Rome Statute was adopted on July 17, 1998 which is the founding treaty of the International Criminal Court which was set up to deal with the most serious crimes of international concern, namely genocide, crimes against humanity and war crime.
HURPES has been pressing the Nepal government for ratification of the Statute since 21 years. Although the government has responded positively towards this issue, no concrete action has been taken to this end.
HURPES is a NGO that focuses on non-violence, peace, human rights and democracy. It was founded on June 1, 1996.

Civil society leaders demonstrate against deal with Raut

Civil society leaders stage a demonstration against the government-CK Raut agreement, in Kathmandu, on Wednesday, March 13, 2019.

Kathmandu, March 13

A group of civil society leaders on Wednesday staged a protest in Kathmandu against a recent agreement that the government signed with Madheshi politician CK Raut.

Policed interfered in the protest and detained the demonstrators including Krishna Pahadi.

They had launched the demonstration in front of the southern entrance of Singhadarbar, the main administrative complex of the country.

The demonstrators argued that the deal was  ‘criminal’ in nature and it jeopardised the country’s sovereignty as Raut supporters began interpreting as the government’s agreement to hold a consensus on whether to separate the Madhesh region from Nepal.

They, however, maintained that the deal should be welcomed if it really ended the secessionist movement.

32 activists arrested for anti-govt protests in Nepal

By Shirish B Pradhan

Kathmandu, Jan 30 At least 32 Nepalese human rights activists, including nine women, were arrested on Wednesday in Kathmandu for staging anti-government protests.

The protest was organised by the Human Rights and Peace Society, Nepal demanding resignation of Tourism and Civil Aviation Minister Rabindra Adhikari for his alleged involvement in wide body aircraft purchase corruption and fulfillment of demands of agitating senior surgeon Dr. Govinda KC.

According to a Parliamentary committee report, Rs. 4.5 billion loss was incurred while purchasing two air buses for state-owned Nepal Airlines and Tourism Minister Adhikari had allegedly made false statement on the issue in his explanation to the Parliamentary committee.

Dr. KC has been staging fast unto death for the past 20 days demanding sweeping reforms in the medical sector but the government last week passed a medical bill through majority vote in the Parliament without addressing his demands.

Those arrested include senior human rights activist Krishna Pahadi, president of the society Uttam Pudasaini, and central member Gita Timilsina.

They were carrying placards with the slogans ‘Address demands of agitating doctor KC’, ‘Take action against those involved in aircraft purchase deal’, ‘Sack Tourism Minister Adhikari.’

On Tuesday, police detained 50 members of Nepali Congress for staging a protest in front of the Prime Minister’s official residence to express solidarity with Dr KC. SBP ZH ZH

(from My Republica)

KATHMANDU, Dec 10: Police have arrested human rights activists including Krishna Pahadi on the charge of demonstrating in front of the Prime Minister’s Official Residence in Baluwatar on Monday.

The protestors were taken under control while they were advancing toward the Prime Minister’s residence crossing the restricted zone, holding a banner reading “Failure to Book Nirmala’s Culprit Constitutes Government’s Ineptitude”.Organized by the Human Rights and Shanti Samaj, in the demonstration, the participants demanded with the government to immediately book Nirmala’s perpetrator and stop all forms of violence against women, terming them as ‘heinous crime’.

Various organizations, parties and individuals have been staging sit-ins and demonstrations time and again to pile pressure on the government to bring the culprit involved in the rape of murder of Nirmala Panta to justice, a 13-year-old girl who had been ruthlessly murdered after rape in Kanchanpur back in July.The government is still clueless about the Nirmala case even after four and a half months, questioning the efficiency of the government.
