PRESS STATEMENT: GRATITUDE FOR THE MEDIA’S ROLE IN PUBLICISING THE ACTIVITIES OF THE COMMISSION

The Commission wishes to express its gratitude for the widespread and continued support of the media in publicising the public hearings of the Commission.  A special word of thanks is required for the accurate (and at times enthusiastic) coverage of events relating to the activities of the Commission.  The Commission furthermore regrets not always having been able to provide buns of the gourmet variety with tea at its public hearings.
