Unable or unwilling? Nirmala Pant Investigation Exposes Systemic Police Failures


COCAP's member organization Advocacy Forum published a report on the Nirmala Panta case. NepalMonitor and Violence Monitoring Annual Report are also used as reference. This report is an attempt to highlight how Nirmala Panta’s tragedy has showcased the systemic failures of the Nepalese State’s ability to effectively investigate and prosecute these crimes, how these failures are a violation of human rights, and continue in turn to reinforce and perpetuate the culture of impunity in Nepal.
