Working for fair and good administration

The Ombudsman provides 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 Ombudsman investigates complaints, launches its own investigations and carries out on-site inspections at official agencies and institutions.

The present Parliamentary Ombudsman is Mr. Petri Jääskeläinen. The Deputy-Ombudsmen are Ms. Maija Sakslin and Mr. Pasi Pölönen.
