Amnesty International has been informed that the editors, journalists and computer operators, who were arrested from their offices in the capital on 26 November 2001 and whose whereabouts were unknown for at least one month, have been transferred to Bhadragol Jail in Kathmandu. Their relatives are reported to have been given access to them on a regular basis. It is reported that they have not so far been brought before a court and no habeas corpus petition (order requiring a detainee to be brought before a judge or into court) has been filed on their behalf.
