Ombudsman responds to the various positions expressed around the multifunctional council created by the Ministry of Justice.
“The Public Defender’s Office has been closely monitoring the work of the council so far, fully monitoring their conclusions and recommendations. During the inspection of the N18 medical institution, the Office assessed the degree of compliance of the institution with the needs listed in the conclusions of the council.
So far, no reason has been identified that would give the Ombudsman’s Office grounds for doubting the principled, competent, highly professional activities of the multifunctional council.
Thus, the Public Defender believes that the current multifunctional group should not cease to function, but continue its activities in a more multidisciplinary and intensive manner. The Ministry should ensure that regular visits and effective activities of the council do not encounter bureaucratic obstacles”, - reads the statement.
