Nepal: Release Sexual Rights Defenders

(New York, August 12, 2004) Nepalese authorities should release 39 members of a group defending sexual rights who were arbitrarily detained on Sunday, Human Rights Watch said today. Human Rights Watch called on the Nepalese government to end harassment of sexual minorities,including men who have sex with men and transgender people, and launch full investigations into allegations of violence against them.
