On 29 September 2014, the Bar Human Rights Committee (BHRC) and the International Senior Lawyers Project UK (ISLP-UK) wrote to the Minister of Peace and Reconstruction in Nepal to express their concerns about the Truth and Reconciliation Act 2014.

Whilst the Act seeks to move forward the process of setting up a Truth and Reconciliation Commission as envisaged by the Comprehensive Peace Agreement of 2006, there are fears that the commissions as they presently stand will not be able to meet their stated objectives as they are not credible and independent. The Act does not conform with international standards, particularly in relation to amnesties.
