TAs can't read assignment comments submitted by students

We have a problem that seems to have recently occurred and would like to get som help to identify the reason for this.

 

TAs report that they can't read comments made by students when they deliver an assignment. The inline comment section in speedgrader is empty for TAs but the teachers can see the comment. The TAs say that they used to be able to see these comments before.

 

I can't find anything in the permission settings that indicate this behavior. The permission for "Submissions - view and make comments" is enabled for both Teacher and TA roles

 

I've replicated the issue in a test course I made.
