Exzellenz,

Sie erhalten anbei eine Kopie eines Schreibens von mir an den Oberbefehlshaber der nepalesischen Streitkräfte. Darin wird er über den Fall eines "Verschwundenen" informiert. Seit August 2003 hat amnesty international über 300 solche Fälle dokumentiert. Dieser junge Mann wird an einem unbekannten Ort festgehalten. Seine Familie hat keinen Zugang zu ihm und man vermutet, dass er schwer gefoltert wurde. Es besteht auch die Gefahr, dass er weiterhin gefoltert oder sogar getötet wird.

Ich appelliere auch an Sie, sich für diesen jungen Mann einzusetzten, um seine Freilassung zu bewerkstelligen.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Anlage:

Re.: Krishna Khatri Chhetri (aka Krishna K. C.)

Dear Chief of Army Staff,

The human rights' organisation Amnesty International has received reports about increasing numbers of people who have "disappeared" in Nepal. One of these people is the former deputy chairman of the All Nepal National Independent Student Union (Revolutionary), Krishna K. C.. Apparently, he was arrested by plain clothes security officials on 13. September 2003 in Koteshwar, Kathmandu. They did not possess any warrant for his arrest. Despite reliable information that he was being held in the Bairabnath Barracks and that he was in poor health, the Army has systematically blocked all attempts of the Supreme Court and the National Human Rights' Commission to ascertain his whereabouts. According to reports, he is being held by members of the security forces, he has been severely tortured and is in danger of being tortured further and even of being put to death.

It is possible that he is suspected of being a supporter of the armed opposition group "Communist Party of Nepal Maoist" which has been banned by the authorities as a "terrorist" organisation since the breakdown of peace talks between that organisation and the government in August 2003.

I would ask you to secure the release of Krishna K. C., provided, that is, that he is innocent of any recognised crime. His family should be informed of his whereabouts and should have access to him and his safety should be guaranteed.

Yours sincerely,
