Ombudsman eyes provinces

By Mike Puia

THE office of the ombudsman in Honiara is looking at the possibility of opening office branches in the provinces.

This was revealed by the Ombudsman’s Director of Legal Services, Nelson Dhita, during a village forum held in West Guadalcanal last week.

Dhita said their office is looking at moving out to other provinces in two or three year time.

He said this is one way of enabling members for the public in the provinces to access their service.

Earlier the Ombudsman, Fred Fakari’i, confirmed they are looking at setting up branches in the most populated provinces.

Fakari’i said moving out to the provinces is a plan but it will depend much on the data the office will get about where most complaints come from.
