Where we propose to investigate a complaint, we are required first to give the BinJ concerned, and to any person who is alleged in the complaint, or who otherwise appears to have taken or authorised the action which would be the subject of the investigation, an opportunity to comment on the matter.
There is a BinJ notification letter in ECHO for this.
It should be sent by the Investigation Team Coordinator when the case is allocated to an Investigator. It is sometimes the case a BinJ has not sent information requested at the Assessment stage. Team Coordinators should remind the BinJ in the notification letter that this information is still required and, where applicable, the date by which it is needed.
