“Annual, special, and thematic reports of NHRIs serve to highlight key national human rights concerns and provide the means by which these bodies can make recommendations to, and monitor respect for, human rights by public authorities.
The SCA acknowledges that the OPD has produced and made publicly available such reports. It encourages the OPD to continue to do so.
Public authorities are encouraged to respond to recommendations from NHRIs in a timely manner, and to provide detailed information on practical and systematic follow up action, as appropriate, to the NHRI’s recommendations.
The SCA acknowledges that the OPD conducts follow up activities to monitor the extent to which their recommendations have been implemented. It encourages the OPD to continue to do so.”
