Kathmandu, May 27: Minister for Foreign Affairs Pradeep Kumar Gyawali has said the perpetrators forcefully disappearing people would be punished.
Inaugurating the workshop organized by Informal Service Centre (INSEC) and Advocacy Forum on ‘Forced Disappearance in Asia: Prevailing Laws, Challenges and Resolutions’ in the capital today, Minister Gyawali reiterated that stringent legal actions would be taken against such perpetrators.
He said that the government is committed to recommend the victims or families of victims for reparation and penalty for the perpetrator after the Commission examines the case and ascertains the victims and perpetrators.
On the occasion, United Nations Committee on Enforced Disappearance Vice-Chairperson Rainer Huhle said that Nepal could leverage on being signatory to the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance rather than harboring the great sense of fear and responsibility in being a signatory country.
