“The SCA acknowledges the amendments to the selection and appointment process which have been included in the new Organic Law to provide for a clear, transparent and participatory process.

However, since the entry into force of the Law, the SCA understands that the appointment of a new Commission has still not been completed. The SCA further understands that this resulted in a short period in which the NHRCT was unable to make decisions with respect to complaints due to an insufficient number of Commissioners, which resulted in a lack of quorum.”
