Two UN rapporteurs and one independent expert on protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and discrimination against women and child have expressed serious concern over some of the provisions proposed in the citizenship bill currently being debated in Parliament.

Writing an eight-page letter to the government of Nepal through Nepal’s Permanent Mission in Geneva on September 21, whose copy the Post has obtained, the three UN-appointed experts have expressed their reservations over some of the discriminatory provisions proposed in the bill.

The three experts say that the proposed law seemed to be discriminatory against women, trans and gender-diverse persons, and does not comply with international human rights norms and standards.
