Queries to old management on human rights reports cause of delay: A-G
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.
