Categories: South Asia, Nepal, Citizen Media, Governance, Human Rights, Politics, War & Conflict

The National Network of Families of Disappeared and Missing Nepal claims that more than 1,400 people were forcibly disappeared [1] during a decade long (1996-2006) civil war [2]. Siromani Dhungana [3] at ‘United We Blog! for a Democratic Nepal’ reports that the issue of disappearance has not been addressed properly by the state and the political parties.
