KATHMANDU — Maoist parties have concluded that they should have a common view on fathoming different conflict-era issues through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the Commission of Investigation on Enforced Disappeared Persons.

A meeting of six Maoist parties on Wednesday chose to press the government to address all war-time cases as both the commissions have begun collecting complaints from conflict victims.

The parties including UCPN-Maoist led by Pushpa Kamal Dahal, CPN-Revolutionary Maoist led by Mohan Baidya, CPN (Maoist) led by Matrika Yadav, Revolutionary Communist Party led by Mani Thapa and Naya Shakti Nepal led by Baburam Bhattarai held a joint meeting in Kathmandu and concluded that all the conflict-era issues including human rights violations cased should be dealt by the twin transitional justice mechanisms.

The meeting held at the party headquarters of the UCPN in Parisdanda concluded that ‘a conspiracy is being hatched to derail the peace process’ by taking war-era cases to regular courts.

The meeting also decided to demand that the cases being handled by police and courts be brought to these commissions.

According to a press statement issued after the meeting, the six parties chose to establish a ‘joint legal desk’ to study the war-time cases and offer recommendations to the government.

The Maoist parties have additionally questioned over the late order of the Supreme Court in regards to the war-time cases. “Even after Truth and Reconciliation Commission started looking after war-era cases, the Supreme Court recently issued an order against former lawmaker of UCPN (Maoist) Keshav Rai. We have taken this issue seriously,” lawmaker Ram Narayan Bidari said.
