Annual report of Anti Corruption Commission deliberated
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.
