IOI – Connecting Public Service
Ombudsmen Globally

On 25 May 2021 the IOI General Assembly was held by virtual means and hosted by the Office of the Irish Ombudsman Peter Tyndall. The General Assembly brought together 130 IOI member institutions to hear presentations from the IOI Board of Directors on the organization’s services, development and achievements in the past years and to adopt two major reform to the IOI By-laws, in order to guarantee that the IOI becomes a more inclusive, transparent and democratic organization.
Officers of the Ombudsman undertook a short training on how Intelligence could be used to help boost their investigations. The training was coordinated by the Director of the National Intelligence Unit, Superintendent Frazer Tambe.
La Médiatrice européenne, Emily O'Reilly, se félicite du fait que le Parlement ait approuvé le renforcement du cadre juridique de son bureau (602 votes sur 692 votants). La révision du statut va permettre de renforcer la base juridique du Médiateur, introduire des garanties supplémentaires pour assurer son indépendance, y compris un budget approprié pour soutenir les activités du bureau.
