The Fiji Hu­man Rights and Anti-Dis­crim­i­na­tion Com­mis­sion An­nual Re­ports from 2008 to 2015 are yet to be tabled

in Par­lia­ment. Speak­ing in Par­lia­ment on Tues­day, At­tor­ney-Gen­eral Aiyaz SayedKhaiy­um said the ac­counts had been au­dited by the Of­fice of the Au­di­tor-Gen­eral.

How­ever, there were a num­ber of queries that they had and as a re­sult the doc­u­ments were sent back to the Hu­man Rights Com­mis­sion. He said the Com­mis­sion had sent them to the for­mer Man­age­ment for their re­sponse as there was an en­tire change in the man­age­ment af­ter 2013.

“We un­der­stand that once the re­sponses are re­ceived or not re­ceived, they will fi­nalise a re­sponse to the Of­fice of the Au­di­tor-Gen­eral by Septem­ber which is this month. “And then it will be tabled soon there­after as soon as the Of­fice of the Au­di­tor-Gen­eral com­pletes those re­ports,” the A-G said.

He added that the 2016 to 2018 re­ports were tabled in Par­lia­ment on Mon­day.
