Nepal seeks end to impunity

Kathmandu, June 18:

General secretary of the CPN-UML Madhav Kumar Nepal today said the report of the Rayamajhi Commission should be made public and a new law formulated to punish those guilty of suppressing Jana Andolan-II if impunity is to be ended in the country.

Speaking at a talk programme on ‘Transitional period and Impunity’, Nepal said democracy is in danger due to the ever deteriorating law and order situation.

“Criminals are being encouraged due to the culture of impunity,” he said.

“If criminals are brought to book on time, it will help safeguard the Constituent Assembly election,” he said. He also said parties lack political determination as they don’t feel that criminals must be punished.

President of the Informal Sector Service Centre, Subodh Raj Pyakurel, said: “Parties should work to end the culture of impunity and create a peaceful environment.”
