Who We Are - Office of the Ombudsman

Since 1989, the Ombudsman has acted as an independent authority that helps the community in its dealings with government agencies. In 2013, the role of the Ombudsman was extended to cover human rights and now the Office is also known as the National Human Rights Institution of Samoa. In this section you’ll find an overview of our history and who we are. You’ll also learn about the legislation we operate under, how our organisation is structured, as well as who our staff are.
