Solomon Islands Ombudsman’s Office: Encouragement to Report Unfair Treatment
Quoting the Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation – 23 February 2018
“The Ombudsman’s Act 2017 effected on the 31st January this year has given the Office of the Ombudsman powers to investigate issues relating to Mal-administration.
“The Ombudsman, Mr. Fredrick Leve Fakarii, explained any person who is unhappy with a government officer or contractor because of unfair treatment can raise their complaints through his office for investigation.
“Mr. Leve said the complaints can be raised either through verbal, in person, through telephone and or writing of letter or email.
“He encouraged the public to raise their grievances to his office.
“Members of the public who think that they are unfairly treated by any government agency, are encouraged to raise their complaints to the ombudsman’s office,” he said.
“The new Act also provides for a referral mechanism where the ombudsman can refer to another authority, complaints which is not Mal-administration.”
“He added, his office is making sure that complaints are dealt with.”
