Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Apr 25 (UNI) A human rights organisation today urged the Seven Party Alliance in Nepal to establish a judicial commission to inquire into alleged abuse of power and human rights violation since the 'Royal takeover' on February 1, 2005.

Asian Centre for Human Rights in a statement here urged SPA, which had been invited to form the government following the historic revival of Parliament in that country, to conduct judicial inquiry by a serving Supreme Court judge to probe abuse of power and human rights violation by the government since February 1, 2005.

The commission must complete its inquiry within 90 days, it demanded.

It also sought immediate repealing of all ordinances, including the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Punishment and Control) Ordinances, imposed since the dissolution of Parliament in May 2002, restore press freedom and release all political detainees.

It was reported that as many as 14 pro-democracy activists had been killed, over a dozen had disappeared and more than 5,000 people had been injured in the recent 'uprising' in the Himalayan Kingdom.
