About the secretariat
The secretariat assists the Commission by investigating the factual and legal aspects of the cases. The secretariat is headed by the Chair and has 13 fulltime employees.
Nine investigating officers have a legal background, while two investigating officers have a police background. Additionally, the secretariat employs one office manager and a senior secretary.
The investigating officers have extensive experience from both the criminal justice system and other areas.
Currently (in 2020) the Commission also employs three additional legal investigators due to a large number of applications for reopening of NAV cases.
The Commission has a duty to provide guidance. If the applicant is not assisted by a lawyer, the secretariat will normally be in direct contact with the individual.
