Is Nepal Army Colonel Kumar Lama's arrest in the UK over conflict-era torture case justifiable?
Samin Jay Budha Magar
Col. Lama has not been brought to justice in Nepal as use torture is not a crime in Nepal. If spoken about human rights he is guilty of serious human rights violations and must be sentenced life imprisionment. The case has been linked with soverignity of Nepal by Maoist politicians who are partners-in-crime with Col. Lama. Place yourself in the victims' shoes and then say if Col Lama is to be punished or not.

On what ground should we grant impunity to human rights abusers? What the UK did is what the Nepali government should be doing to instead of providing them safe haven. My own family is the victim of human right abuses in 1990s in Bhutan and I can genuinely feel the pain of the family members of those who suffered the abuses. What the UK did is praiseworthy.

Yes. I hope that other people accused of similar crimes also go to the UK sometime.
