Biratnagar, July 17 : The Informal Sector Services Centre (INSEC) and the Human Rights Alliance here have jointly drawn the attention of the government to the need of respecting the international law by endorsing the convention on International Criminal Court or the Rome Statute.
INSEC's east regional coordinator Somraj Thapa, through Chief District Officer Ram Prasad Acharya, drew the attention of the Prime Minister on this matter.

CDO Acharya said that the memorandum would be forwarded to the Prime Minister's Office today itself. He said the government was alert against the violation of human rights.
