While the Nepal Communist Party fight has turned Nepal’s politics murky, the one section that seems to fall prey to its leaders’ actions is victims of the decade-long armed conflict.

Thousands of victims of the 1996-2006 insurgency, which resulted in the deaths of at least 13,000 people and disappearance of thousands of others, have been awaiting justice for over a decade and a half now, largely due to a lack of will on the part of Nepal’s political parties to conclude the peace process.

After a political split in the Nepal Communist Party as a result of Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s decision to dissolve the lower house on December 20, the faction led by Oli is now in a bid to woo former Maoist combatants.
