On 15th  September 2017,  the Annual  Ombudsman’s  Report,  for the  year  ended  31st December 2016, was laid before Parliament by the Speaker of the House.
Copies of the Annual Report have been sent to all Government entities, agencies and authorities and copies of the report are also being made available to members of the public, free of charge.   A press release to this effect was issued by the Office of the Ombudsman.
As mentioned in the last office update, the format of the Ombudsman’s Annual Report will be changed, with effect from 2017.  One of the changes will be that case summaries will  be  included  in  the  report,  rather  than  the  full  detailed  reports  on  the  cases investigated.
The aim is to make the Annual Ombudsman’s Report more readable to the public, whilst preserving the confidentiality of the individuals concerned in our small jurisdiction.
