Special procedures - Article 19

The Governing Body may refer the complaint to a COI

The government concerned may provide a statement if so requested.

If invited by the Governing Body to provide a statement on the complaint, the government has the possibility of giving its view of the matter to the Governing Body. As a result, the Governing Body may decide that it will let the matter lie with regular supervision by the CEACR, closing the complaint without referring the matter to a COI. Click to see an example.
