    Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla, participated in an event to commemorate the anniversary of the Ombudsman.

    “The Ombudsman filled a huge void, because it was necessary to provide the people of our country a relationship with state institutions that was more humane, direct, dynamic, flexible and accessible,” said the president.

    Data from the Ombudsman indicates that in the 20 years of management it has processed about 400,000 applications from citizens on various issues ranging from public services to the protection of minority rights.

    In 2013 the Ombudsman estimated that they received close to 30,000 complaints from citizens. (EFE)
