|Subject: Nepal convicts soldiers of killing girl during civil war Mon Apr 17, 2017 11:24 pm|| |
|Three former Nepalese soldiers have each been sentenced in absentia to 20 years in jail for killing a teenage girl, only the second conviction for crimes committed during a decade-long civil war which ended in 2006.|
Fifteen-year-old Maina Sunuwar was tortured and killed after she was detained by the army in 2004 for alleged links to Maoist rebels.
But a military tribunal the following year ruled that her death was accidental and charged the three soldiers involved in the case with only minor offences.
Maina's mother brought a case in a civilian court which delivered its verdict on Sunday, a court official told AFP.
But none of the three convicted are currently in custody, and rights groups have raised concerns they may never serve their sentences.
A fourth soldier, the most senior of all those accused, was acquitted.
"We have fought for justice for so many years, I'm glad the court has understood our plight," Sunuwar's mother Devi told AFP.
