Event : Demonstration for Immediate Accession to the ICC T

Kathmandu/ 9 June : Human Rights organizations have organized sit-in and protest programme in Kathmandu on 8 June demanding the state to accede to Rome Statue of the International Criminal Court and the Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture.

Addressing the programme, former NHRC commissioner Sushil Pyakurel stressed on the need to end impunity and the need to democratize Nepal Army. He criticized the government for failing to accede to the Statute even after the unanimous approval of a commitment proposal by the House of Representatives (HoR) that directed the government immediately accede to the ICC Treaty nearly a year ago.

Another Human Rights Activist Krishna Pahadi also demanded accession to Rome Statute to the end the rampant impunity in the country.

National Coalition for the ICC (NCICC), INSEC and FOHRID among other organizations had organized the protest programme.
