St. Maarten – The Ombudsman of Sint Maarten, Dr. Nilda Arduin has been appointed as one of the Regional Directors of the Latin American and the Caribbean Region of the International Ombudsman Institute at the world conference in Wellington, New Zealand.

The Ombudsman left the island on Saturday to attend the conference.  The event will provide Ombudsmen from around the world the opportunity to meet, share their experiences and engage in fruitful debate and discussions.

The International Ombudsman Institute (I.O.I.) was established in 1978 as an independent global organization with a membership of approximately 145 Ombudsman institutions from around the world.  This organization handles complaints from the public about the public administration and human rights violations.  Sint Maarten became a member of the I.O.I in November 2011.

One of the main events of the conference is the appointment of the regional directors. The term of a director shall not exceed four years but a director may be reappointed or re-elected.
