Investigation Planned in Nepal on World Bank Violations of Indigenous Rights

The World Bank Inspection Panel has recommended an investigation into human rights violations associated with construction of a high voltage transmission line in Nepal funded by the World Bank.  The investigation, and a commitment by the Bank to address issues on the ground in the meantime, is the result of an Accountability Counsel-supported complaint from communities in the Sindhuli District of Nepal.  More on this case is available here.
