Ombudsman to Train Staff in Investigative Methods

The Ombudsman’s office says its employees have to know the latest investigative techniques to be able to fight corruption at all levels. It’s in this regard that the institution this Monday held a training session for 68 of its staff to learn these skills.
They are being trained on how to do initial investigations, how to file a lawsuit in courts of law and arbitration where necessary. The Ombudsman, Tito Rutaremara in an interview with Contact FM outlined the importance of such training.

The office is tasked with fighting corruption in public and private sectors as well as addressing issues of unfair treatment but has been criticized for lacking powers to prosecute.
