OBSTACLES IN THE FUNCTIONING OF THE T.R.C.
Administrative and Logistical Obstacles
From the very beginning of its work the Commission experienced some minor difficulties, that threatened to affect its proper functioning, and which had some bearings on the timely completion of its Report. Among those factors were:
- The Commission did not have funds allocated to it to manage and dispense for conducting its requisite activities.
- The governmental persons/agencies charged with the responsibility of attending to the needs of the Commission could have done more to ensure the adequate and effective functioning of the Commission.
- The Commission experienced that because of the apparent lack of sufficient publicity and public consultation prior to the commencement of, and during its work, it was deprived of valuable groundwork which should have been laid and which could have paved the way for its being accorded a more propitious reception.
- The Commission found that the moving of its Secretariat from one location to another during the course of its work; changes of secretaries and support staff at various stages of its work, contributed to much delay and disruption of its functioning.
