The five-year term can be renewed once.
The current board of directors consists of:
- Patrick DE ROND, chairman
- Netty KLEIN, member
- Paul KREMER, member
- Anik RASKIN, member
- Raymond REMAKEL, member
Missions of the panel
The CET’s members carry out their mission neutrally and independently. They perform their functions without getting involved in on-going legal proceedings.
Information to which the members may become privy as part of the performance of their missions and relating to individual situations or cases is subject to professional secrecy. Professional secrecy does not prevent the communication, to the competent legal authorities, of all information that could establish, relative to the victim, discrimination as defined by the present law.
They have the right to request any information, element or document, with the exception of any that is covered by medical secrecy or otherwise by professional secrecy, that may prove to be necessary for the performance of their mission.
The functions of the CET’s members are incompatible with any mandates as a member of the Chamber of Depuities, or of the State Council or of the Government.
Members of the CET appointed to replace ones whose functions come to an end before their normal expiry complete the term of the members who are being replaced.
The CET adopts rules of procedure that define its internal organisation, its operation and its working procedures.
Once each year, the CET provides the Government and the Chamber of Deputies with a general report on its activities.
