“[…] the annual report of the Ombudsman is tabled in Parliament and is discussed in the presence of the Ombudsman. The report of the HRC is presented to the Constitutional Law Committee, to other Committees depending upon the content of the report, and to the Parliament. However, it is neither tabled nor discussed in Parliament.

The SCA is of the view that, as a result of this difference in procedure, Parliament is not provided with a complete account of the work of the FNHRI. The SCA considers it preferable for the HRC to also have the ability to table its reports in Parliament for discussion.”
