FF condemns arrest of human rights activists

Freedom Forum condemns the arrest of twelve human right activists from Maitighar Mandala, Kathmandu, while protesting government's decision of prohibited zone and demanding justice to Dr Govind KC and Ganga Maya Adhikari on July 6.

Dr KC has been staging fast-unto-death demanding reform in the health education and service sector, while Gangamaya too has been staging fast-unto-death, demanding justice to the murder of son Krishna Prasad Adhikari with the legal action to those involved in his murder.

Charan Prashain, Sr. Surendra Bhandari, Dr. Uddwab Pyakurel, Mahamunishwor Acharya, Sagar Adhikari, Manoj Adhikari, Mohan Gyawali, Lokendra Pokheral, Lokraj Awsathi, Bishwa Dulal, Jayram Dahal and Indra Prasad Aryal were arrested during the protest. They all were released after some hours.

FF vehemently condemns the government move to limit public places to crush civil space. The government is strongly urged to act in a democratic manner and respect people's rights.
