Financial Oversight Committee
To safeguard the financial interests of the IAP and assist the Secretary-General and the Executive Committee in their tasks, a Financial Oversight Committee is installed.
This Committee should consist of at least three members of the Executive Committee or the Senate who shall be nominated by the Executive Committee and appointed by the General Meeting.
In preparation of each meeting of the Executive Committee, the Secretary-General will provide all necessary information (financial report, report by accountant, future budget, relevant drafts) to the Financial Oversight Committee whose members will look into the past financial dealings, current status and future budget of the IAP. If necessary, the members of this committee can ask the Secretary-General or other persons questions to clarify any relevant points. All this should happen in due time before the beginning of Executive Committee meetings at which the Financial Oversight Committee will inform the Executive Committee on its findings.
The Financial Oversight Committee can add any comments on past, present and future financial dealings of the IAP and should recommend whatever measures seem to help the budgetary status of the IAP.
Since September 2018, the IAP Financial Oversight Committee comprises:
Jean-Francois Thony, Prosecutor General, Court of Appeal of Colmar, France
Runar Torgersen, Senior Public Prosecutor, Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, Norway
Christopher Toth, Deputy Executive Director, National Association of Attorney Generals (NAAG) / Director, National Attorneys General Training and Research Institute (NAGTRI), United States of America
Michael Lauber, Attorney General, Office of the Attorney General of Switzerland, Switzerland
