By Amnesty International, , Index number: ASA 31/006/2007

Amnesty International welcomes the transparency shown by the government of Nepal in publicising the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Bill and its call for comments on its current provisions. This Memorandum examines the main aspects of the TRC Bill in the light of international human rights law and standards and offers some preliminary observations and recommendations which the organization hopes will contribute to the continuing debate on the composition, mandate, functions and powers of the proposed TRC.
