Kathmandu, March 28
The government of Nepal has formed a panel to pick new officials for two transitional justice mechanisms: Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the Commission of Investigation on Enforced Disappeared Persons.
The twin bodies’ extended deadline was over in February. However, the government had extended their term by one year by amending the act. Their incumbent officials are due to retire in April.
A recent meeting of the Council of Ministers formed the five member panel under the leadership of former chief justice Om Prakash Mishra.
Other members of the panel include senior advocate Ram Nath Mainali, Prem Bahadur Khadka and Sharmila Karki. The National Human Rights Commission Chairman or any member appointed by him will work as the fifth member.
