The Ombudsman exercises oversight to ensure that public authorities and officials observe the law and fulfil their du­ties. The scope of oversight includes also other parties performing public functions.

The aim is to ensure good administration and the observance of constitutional and human rights.

The present Parliamentary Ombudsman is Mr. Petri Jääskeläinen. The Deputy-Ombudsman are Mr. Jussi Pajuoja and Ms. Maija Sakslin.

Our advisory lawyers can help you in writing a complaint. Our telephone number is (09) 4321 (Parliament's switchboard). However, the lawyers do not provide any judicial assistance nor predict the outcome of a complaint.

A face-to-face meeting may be arranged by appointment.
