THE Government hopes to table the long-awaited Truth and Reconciliation Commission report in the March sitting next year.

The five-volume report uncovers the accounts of victims and perpetrators on the causes, details and effects of the ethnic conflict from 1998 to 2000.

Sectary to Prime Minister, Dr Jimmy Rodgers stated this when asked during the Public Accounts Committee in Parliament this week.

The PAC was enquiring into the 2023 Appropriation Bill 2022 budget.

Dr Rodgers said with the TRC, the government is working on the reparation policy.

He said it is one of the recommendations of the TRC report to a Commission to look at claims of people affected by the ethnic conflict.

Previous governments have failed to table the TRC report in Parliament, which led to the editor to leak it on social media.

Apart from that, Dr Rodgers said the government is hoping to table the Federal system in Parliament for deliberation as well.
