Kathmandu, Dec 7 (RSS): Chairperson of the Commission of the Investigation on Enforced Disappeared Persons (CIEDP), Lokendra Mallik, claimed that the Commission was working for the sake of conflict victims.
"The CIEDP in the past four years collected data on 3,197 disappeared citizens from 56 districts, and the preliminary investigation has started. The investigation into the disappearance of 1,902 people during the insurgency has also reached the final stage," said Mallik at a programme with the theme of 'transactional justice and state's responsibility' organised here by the Human Rights Organisation of Nepal in Kathmandu on Friday.
The CIEDP’s term expires coming February 9, and preparations are underway to prepare and submit the report to the government after completing its assigned task for 65 districts within December 30, he shared. The victims will be given the identity card after identifying them, he said, adding that the CIEDP has received 66,000 complaints so far.
On the occasion, Chairperson of the National Human Rights Commission Anupraj Sharma pledged to take action against the war perpetrators and provide justice to the victims.
Former Speaker Daman Nath Dhungana viewed that some sections in the Comprehensive Peace Accord should be amended so as to facilitate the victims to get justice. He worried over the denial of justice to the victims even after 12 of the insurgency.
Nepali Congress General Secretary Dr Sashank Koirala said his party was committed to helping conflict victims get justice.
