NHRC sends Pathak to TRC selection panel

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has sent its member Sudeep Pathak to the committee formed to recommend names for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and the Commission for the Inquiry of the Disappeared Persons (CIDP).

After the decision, the recommendation committee led by former Chief Justice Om Bhakta Shrestha got a full shape.

The TRC, CIDP Formation Act, 2014 requires representation of NHRC in the recommendation committee.

The Commission sent a letter to the Ministry of Peace and Reconstruction informing that Pathak has been sent for the recommendation committee, said NHRC acting Secretary Bed Prasad Bhattarai in a statement today.

As the national human rights watchdog was vacant while the committee was formed, the recommendation panel was unable to get a full shape.
