Nepal: Need Effective Steps to Enforce Court Verdicts
Rule of Law Should Prevail, Not Political Protectionism
Nepali authorities should immediately take effective steps to enforce the landmark Kavre district court murder verdict for the 2004 torture and killing of teenage Maina Sunuwar, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and the International Commission of Jurists said today. On 16 April 2017, the Kavre district court sentenced three army officers to life imprisonment for the murder of Maina Sunuwar, a 15-year-old girl who was tortured in army custody and died as a result in February 2004.
