Nepal: Military assistance contributing to grave human rights violations
This report documents how military aid and arms supplies to Nepal from countries such as the United States of America (US), the United Kingdom (UK) and India have facilitated the killing, torture and "disappearance" of thousands of civilians. The report focuses particular attention on military aid, arms transfers and training provided by the US, UK and India during the nine-year armed conflict between the security forces and the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist). It also examines the supply of arms from private companies and the role governments play in providing export licenses for such sales.
