KATHMANDU: Human rights activists have drawn attention of the government toward increased activities of foreign power centers owing to delay in transitional justice delivery.

Speakers at a program organized by Amnesty International Nepal Group 3 Kathmandu on Saturday, human rights activists stressed that the government should turn serious for transitional justice delivery.

They said that a message has been sent out to the global community that the government and the ruling parties are insensitive to transitional justice delivery and it would harm the country.

Speaking at the program, human rights activist Pradeep Pokharel said that the office-bearers of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) should be selected only after amending laws as per the international standards for transitional justice delivery.

Also speaking, human rights activist Kapil Shrestha opined that the international community is turning dissatisfied over transitional justice delivery in Nepal and if the issue is not addressed timely it would harm the country.

Saying that the leadership of one of the side of the armed conflict has been making lightweight comments on human rights and democracy, Shrestha warned that the international court can reach homes to arrest war criminals.

Similarly, human rights activist Charan Prasai said that it was sad that transitional justice delivery has been obstructed.

Also speaking Dr. Gopal Krishna Shiwakoti said that the current political equation has weakened civil society and put democracy and human rights in danger.
