GENEVA - Nepal should proceed with long-delayed plans to investigate its 10-year civil war ending in 2006 which saw abuses by both sides, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said on Monday.

"Perpetrators of serious violations on both sides have not been held accountable, (and) in some cases have been promoted and may now even be offered an amnesty," Pillay wrote in an introduction to an online report documenting the violations.

Despite the pact between the government then in power, and Maoist rebels, she said, "The transitional justice mechanisms promised in the peace accords have still not been established, and successive governments have withdrawn cases that were before the courts."
