Perhaps it is no coincidence that a majority of the submissions from 
civil society organizations based in India to the ICG raised the issue 
of jurisdiction.

But in the final ICG report, there is no explanation (I know, I 
searched) as to why the jurisdiction-related concerns raised in those 
submissions (as part of WS1 and as part of the ICG's mandate) were 
deemed sufficiently unimportant so as not to merit discussion or 
reflection in the report.

What an utter farce.
