Dekendra Raj Thapa, Radio Nepal
11 August 2004

Reporters Without Borders expressed shock and outrage today at the murder of reporter Dekendra Raj Thapa, of the pro-government Radio Nepal, who

the pro-Maoist Communist Party of Nepal said it had executed Dekendra Raj Thapa, of the pro-government Radio Nepal, on 11 August 2004, according to a 16 August party leaflet.

Thap was kidnapped in Dailekh (500 km west of Kathmandu) on 26 June by Maoist troops who accused him of spying for the government. Among 10 charges against him was one of helping to organise a ceremony to honour King Gyanendra in April. The leaflet, signed by "Comrade Ranajeet," the local party secretary, said he was executed after being found guilty of spying.

Thap was a keen rights activist and had been an adviser to the independent Human Rights and Peace Society (HURPES).
