Director of Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Commission, Ashwin Raj says the Commission will be making its submission on the proposed Police Bill once the bill has been tabled in Parliament.
Raj says the Commission will in its substantive submission call for alignment of the bill with the state's human rights obligation under the domestic procedures and international conventions and treaties that Fiji has ratified.
He says the Commission wrote to Parliament requesting for a date to make a submission on the proposed bill.
Raj says they were advised that the Police Bill is yet to be tabled in the House.
He says any commentary on the draft bill before it is tabled in the Parliament is premature.
