Welcome Speech by Ombudsman ‘Aisea Taumoepeau
INTRODUCTION

The international concept known as the “Ombudsman” started in Sweden. The Swedish Parliamentary Ombudsman was instituted by an Instrument of Government in 1809, to safeguard the rights of citizens. It was a supervisory agency independent of the Executive. The word “Ombudsman” is derived from the Swedish equivalent of “Protector of the People”. The concept of the Ombudsman has now spread to all corners of the world.
