EU missions (Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, UK, and the EU Delegation), Norway and Switzerland have expressed concerns for delays in the completion of the peace process, respect for human rights and democracy.
“In recent weeks we have witnessed a sharp upsurge in political debate. This activism reveals a deep desire for peace, democracy, respect for human rights and rule of law. The EU missions (Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, UK, and the EU Delegation), Norway and Switzerland call on Nepal's political leaders to listen to and act upon these concerns,” states a press release issued jointly by EU missions, Norway and Switzerland.
“Whether their focus is violence against women or conflict-era human rights cases, the message is clear: that crime must not be condoned; that victims must not be ignored; and that perpetrators must not be shielded from the due process of the law.”
