Bahrain king sets up national commission to implement report recommendations

November 27, 2011

King Hamad Bin Eisa Al Khalifa has set up a national commission to follow up and implement the recommendations of the report published last week by the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry (BICI).

According to the royal order issued by King Hamad, the National Commission will be formed and given powers based on Paragraph 1715 of BICI report issued on November 23.

The National Commission will examine the BICI recommendations and submit its own proposals, including recommendations to make the necessary amendments to the legislation and the application of the recommendations, the order said.

The National Commission will complete and publish its work in a framework of transparency before the end of February 2012.

According to the order, the National Commission will guarantee that “the outcome of its work on the implementation of the recommendations is in accordance with best international practices and standards.”

The government will endeavour to implement BICI recommendations without delay and without waiting for the recommendations of the National Commission.

The order said that the National Commission had the freedom to comment on the government’s implementation of BICI recommendations and that the government will provide the resources necessary to the National Commission to empower it to carry out its work fully.
