Ombudsman


Ombudsman
   Since 1982, the independent institution of the na tional ombudsman has dealt with complaints from Dutch citizens about unseemly actions of the central government. The ombudsman is appointed by the Parliament’s Second Chamber. He or she takes individual cases into account only when no appeal is possible. Al though the ombudsman may not judge laws and cannot change deci sions from judges, his or her reports are taken seriously.
