Practice Relating to Rule 136. Recruitment of Child Soldiers
In 2007, in its comments to the conclusions and recommendations of the Committee against Torture, Nepal stated:
No person under the age of 18 is recruited in the Nepal Army. … Since the United Nations Mission in Nepal has been entrusted with the task of monitoring and registration of the arms and combatants of the Maoists as per the [2006] Comprehensive Peace Agreement between the Government and Nepal Communist Party (Maoist), it is understandable that no child soldiers can remain in the Maoist side as well.
