A new analysis piece on Nepal’s stalled peace process has been published by Chandra Bhatta and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung . Whilst it discusses the broader process, it does make clear the implications for families of the Missing of the direction it is now taking:
The recent four-point agreement between the Maoists and the UDMF renders redundant some of the major commitments made in the CPA as it spells out to withdraw all cases involving human rights violations pending against Madhesi and Maoist cadres during insurgencies, creation of a separate Madhesi army of 10,000, foreign policy tilt to India, etc. This holds out little hope for the establishment of two commissions – Truth and Reconciliation and Disappeared Persons – aiming to provide transitional justice.
