Aiding fairness and justice through Solomons accountability institutions

DEAR EDITOR, an article in the Island Sun newspaper, today, Tuesday 21 August, 2018, told of a new partnership arrangement which will soon see the Australian Government, through the Office of the Australian Commonwealth Ombusdman, provide support to the Office of the Ombudsman in the Solomon Islands and to the Leadership Code Commission of the Solomon Islands.

It is my understanding from reading the published article that the proposed arrangement will support both local accountability Institutions, through specific activities such as in leadership mentoring, organization reform and staff capability development.

Coming days after the historic passing of enabling legislation to tackle the fight against corruption, the envisaged support arrangement offered by the Australian Government is welcome news and I extend my thanks in anticipation of the technical aid to allow the Office of the Ombudsman and the Leadership Code Commission to better serve the people of the Solomon Islands with fairness and justice.

Yours sincerely

Frank Short
