Amnesty International has received information from the government confirming that Govinda Ghimire is currently being detained under the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Control and Punishment) Act, 2002 (TADA), at Bhairabnath Army Barracks, Maharajgunj District, Kathmandu, where he may be at risk of torture. It is unclear whether he has been allowed access to a lawyer or whether he has been formally charged with any recognizably criminal offence.
