Jun 10, 2016-

Conflict victims have urged transitional justice bodies to extend the time for registering complaints. The Conflict Victims Common Platform (CVCP), a national alliance of victims of the decade-long insurgency, have concluded that many victims would not be able to register complaints at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and the Commission of Investigation on Enforced Disappeared Persons (CIEDP) as they are still unaware of the transitional justice process. 

The TRC and CIEDP are set to close complaint registration process next week. “Many victims do not know why they should register their complaints,” said Suman Adhikari, chairperson of the CVCP, which released its monitoring report on Thursday. 

The report has highlighted security issues of the victims and witness. “The victims who have registered cases have complained of being watched,” said Adhikari. 

The TRC has received over 20,000 complaints while the CIEDP has received around 2,000 complaints till date.
