[CCWG-ACCT] "Staff Accountability" has been assigned to Work Stream 2 since Frankfurt, and there was no decision to remove it by the CCWG

Our 3rd draft report contains an error that needs to be corrected in the final version of the report.

Specifically, paragraph 34 on page 8 of Annex 12, which provides the details for Rec. 12’s Work Stream 2 work states:
   “Public comments revealed that a review of staff accountability should not be pursued.”

I do not recall any such CCWG conversation or decision to remove "staff accountability" from WS2, and I’ve been on every call since the public comment period referenced in the text.  

And given recent events and the growing concerns about the CEO’s conflict of interest with China, I can’t imagine this group would come to such a conclusion, if a conversation were too happen on the topic.

So unless someone can point to a conversation in the record where the CCWG did in fact decide to remove staff accountability from WS2 based on public comments, the issue must go back in to our report where CCWG assigned it, since its removal appears to be 'accidental’ by the staff-drafters in the last moments of drafting.
