Bhutan Times - - Home - Chimmi Rinzin

The House con­cluded its de­lib­er­a­tion on the an­nual re­port of the Anti Cor­rup­tion Com­mis­sion (ACC) last Fri­day.

De­lib­er­at­ing on the rec­om­men­da­tions of the Good Gov­er­nance Com­mit­tee, is­sues such as hu­man re­source con­straint faced by the ACC and need to en­hance the sys­tem of detention which would re­spect the rights of the in­di­vid­u­als con­cerned were un­der­scored by the Mem­bers. Some Mem­bers made sub­mis­sions on the need to rec­om­mend ACC to specif­i­cally men­tion the pro­vi­sions of laws and Con­sti­tu­tion which were not abided by the gov­ern­ment per­tain­ing to gov­ern­ment’s ini­tia­tive to im­port elec­tric ve­hi­cles.

Con­se­quently, the House re­solved that the Royal Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion and ACC shall con­tinue to work to­gether to ad­dress the is­sue of hu­man re­source con­straint faced by ACC. On the gov­ern­ment’s ini­tia­tive to im­port elec­tric ve­hi­cles, it was re­solved that the ACC and gov­ern­ment should sit to­gether and re­solve whether or not the gov­ern­ment has stepped on the pro­vi­sions of the Con­sti­tu­tion and laws. Fur­ther­more, the Hu­man Rights com­mit­tee of the House was di­rected to re­view the is­sues per­tain­ing to the com­mon detention cen­ter which had to be shared by the in­di­vid­u­als un­der ACC’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Mean­while, the House en­dorsed all other rec­om­men­da­tions made by the Good Gov­er­nance com­mit­tee which in­cludes cre­ation of mech­a­nism by the gov­ern­ment for shar­ing in­for­ma­tion with the ACC and other agen­cies.
