Kathmandu, January 1:
Human rights activists today stressed the need to implement the report of the High-Level Investigation Commission formed to probe the suppression of Jana Andolan II â€œto end lawlessness and the state of impunityâ€ in the country.
Speaking at an interaction titled â€œRayamajhi Commissionâ€™s Report and Impunityâ€ organised by the Joint Forum for Peace and Human Rights, panelâ€™s member Harihar Birahi said, â€œImplementation of the report will help check the existing impunity in the society and makes the government answerable to the people.â€
He cautioned that autocratic forces might get chance to meddle if the government failed to take action against those found guilty by the commission.
Mandira Sharma said, â€œThe state of impunity will continue as long as the government does not penalise those found guilty by the panel.â€ â€œIf the government doesnâ€™t commit to end of the state of impunity, Rayamajhi commissionâ€™s report will face the fate of Mallik Commissionâ€™s report,â€ said Padma Ratna Tuladhar.
