Justice Winston Moore new Ombudsman
For the last few year calls were made by the Opposition to have the government appoint an Ombudsman whose office was closed for the last eight years until today’s appointment.
President Donald Ramotar said he hopes Moore would be effective and the public would take advantage of such an office.
The duties of an Ombudsman are to investigate and resolve complaints by citizens with the aim of identifying issues that maybe leading to poor service or breaches of citizen’s rights.
The country has been without an Ombudsman since the retirement of Justice Sheik Mohamed back in 2005.
