Human Rights Watch charges Nepal of failing to ensure accountability for human rights abuses during decade-long Maoist insurgency
Friday, 13 January 2017 Human Rights Watch has charged Nepal of failing to ensure accountability for human rights abuses during the brutal decade-long Maoist insurgency.In the recently published World Report 2017, the global rights watchdog blamed the Nepal government and political parties of sacrificing victims' needs to promote their own interests.
In an annual report that typically focuses on abuses in less-developed countries, Human Rights Watch issues a sharp warning that the rise of populist politicians in the United States and Europe threatened modern rights movements and potentially even Western democracy.
