UNTAC Military Component Boards of Inquiry (BOI) were convened to make decisions regarding injuries, property damage, and property loss in which UNTAC military personnel were involved. In cases [in progress] where military personnel of a formed unit were involved, the Formed Unit Commander concerned, in consultation with the Chief Military Personnel Officer (CMPO), would convene a Formed Unit Military Boards of Inquiry. Where the person involved was either a UN military observer or other military personnel not of a formed unit, the Force Commander, in consultation with the CMPO, would convene a Non-Formed Unit Military Boards of Inquiry. Serious incidents were referred to a Headquarters Boards of Inquiry for further investigation and action. UNTAC's Boards of Inquiry Unit administered all Boards of Inquiry on behalf of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General; accordingly, it was the custodian of the Military BOI records.
