Nepal: Order on Security and Protection of Human Rights Activists

In February 2021, the Nepalese Ministry of Home affairs adopted the ‘Order on Security and Protection of Human Rights Activists”. The provisions of the order include action against anyone who intimidates or attacks the human rights defenders and relief and compensation to them or their families in case of any untoward incident. The order equally allows individuals to seek information from the concerned bodies or officials regarding violation of a citizen’s personal liberty, and formulates the right of defenders to file a complaint in court if their fundamental rights are violated.
