By Daya Gamage – US National Correspondent for Asian Tribune

[b]Washington, D.C. 21 April (Asiantribune.com):[/b] Nepali King Gyanendra and his senior officials and top military officers should be barred from entering other countries and their personal assets outside of Nepal should be frozen, urge a joint statement by New York-based Human Rights Watch, London-based Amnesty International and International Commission of Jurists.

United State's Department of State spokesman Scot McCormack told a press briefing in Washington on Thursday that "violence will not only beget violence and the security forces need to remember that they are the security forces for a democratic country and they need to draw upon those principles in taking decisions before they act."

Meanwhile, the members and organizations of the Nepali Diaspora in the United States expressed their complete solidarity with the Nepali people in their non-violent movement for absolute democracy and against an autocratic monarchy that has exploited and oppressed the Nepali people for the last 237 years.
