NHRC Chair calls for disability-friendly systems - Kathmandu

Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) Anup Raj Sharma said disability-friendly attitude, behaviours and laws are necessary to ensure dignified life of people with disabilities.

Responding to a delegation from the National Federation of the Disabled Nepal (NFDN) at the Commission on Sunday, Sharma said court verdicts issued in disability-related cases should be thoroughly implemented.

Speaking on the occasion, NHRC Member Govinda Sharma Paudel requested persons with disabilities to give feedback to the Commission for a plan of action aimed at promoting their rights.

The NFDN delegation led by its President Shudarson Subedi had demanded special facilities for persons with psychosocial disabilities, muscular dystrophy, hemophilia, and down syndrome.

They also submitted a nine-point memorandum to NHRC, according to the Commission.
