HOW THE COMMITTEE WAS CREATED

The Peacekeeper Ethics Committee (PEC) was established by the Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke pursuant to the Kahnawà:ke Peacekeepers Law (Amended by MCR # 8/2005-2006 on 17 Kenténha/October, 2005).

WHAT WE DO

The Peacekeeper Ethics Committee (PEC) was instituted to consider complaints made by any person against one or more members of the KahnawĂ :ke Peacekeepers and to make recommendations to the Peacekeeper Services Board (PSB) for the modification of administrative or operational practices that, in the opinion of the Peacekeeper Ethics Committee (PEC), will enable the KahnawĂ :ke Peacekeepers to fulfill their mandate more efficiently, effectively and in accordance with the needs and expectations of the Mohawk People of KahnawĂ :ke.

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PSB

Apart from the relationship described in the “Complaints” section, the Peacekeeper Ethics Committee (PEC) is separate and independent from the Peacekeeper Services Board (PSB).

WHO WE ANSWER TO

The Peacekeeper Ethics Committee (PEC) is ultimately accountable to the Mohawks of KahnawĂ :ke for all of its actions. The Peacekeeper Ethics Committee (PEC) accounts to the Peacekeeper Services Board (PSB) and the Mohawk Council of KahnawĂ :ke on an annual basis by preparation of a report presented at a regular meeting of the Peacekeeper Services Board (PSB).

COMPLAINTS

The Peacekeepers Services Board (PSB) establishes guidelines and procedures for hearing complaints against members of the Peacekeepers that are directed to the Chief Peacekeeper. If the complainant is not satisfied with the outcome of the complaint, he/she may file an appeal with the Peacekeeper Ethics Committee (PEC) under the provisions of the Kahnawake Peacekeeper Law. If the complaint is against the Chief Peacekeeper, it will be directed to the Peacekeeper Services Board. If the complainant is not satisfied with the outcome of the complaint, he/she may file an appeal with the Peacekeeper Ethics Committee.

The Peacekeeper Ethics Committee provides its decisions on complaints against one or more Peacekeepers to the Peacekeeper Services Board, which is required to direct the Chief Peacekeeper to implement the decision of the Peacekeeper Ethics Committee in the case of a complaint against a Peacekeeper. If the complaint was made against the Chief Peacekeeper, the Peacekeepers Services Board will be required to implement the Peacekeeper Ethics Committee’s decision.
