Looking back to the history #INTERPOL was the same organization which issued warrants against #Maoist leaders. Today #Prachanda inaugurated the 23rd INTERPOL regional conference in #Nepal
The BBC News in 2003 quotes, " The international police agency, Interpol, has issued arrest warrants for 11 top Nepalese rebels. They include the Maoist rebel leader, Prachanda, his second-in-command, Baburam Bhattarai, and spokesman Krishna Bahadur Mahara. More than 8,000 people have died in the Maoists' eight-year insurrection aimed at replacing the Himalayan kingdom's monarchy with a communist republic."
Ethically, Mr #Prachanda should have stepped down. He is responsible for the killing of 19000 people on morale grounds & he inaugurated the 23rd regional INTERPOL conference in #nepal
