header1 Issues of concern

  • Corruption is endemic in Nepali politics and government, and often goes unpunished.
  • Due process guarantees are poorly upheld, arbitrary arrests occur, and heavy case backlogs and a slow appeals process result in long pretrial detentions.
  • Gender-based violence is a problem, underage marriage of girls is widespread, and trafficking of women and children remains a problem.
