Who are the Commissioners for Administrative Investigations and what are their functions?

Within the institutional framework of the Office of the Parliamentary Ombudsman, three commissioners targeting health, environment and planning and education have been appointed. These Commissioners devote all their attention to the particular sector within their remit.

These Commissioners are autonomous in the exercise of their respective powers and functions when investigating complaints within their remit.

They are however integrated for all other purposes in the existing structure of the Office of the Parliamentary Ombudsman. Complaints regarding these sectors must still be addressed to the Parliamentary Ombudsman who in terms of law is empowered to assign complaints to the Commissioners.
