Amnesty International (AI) reiterated today that the appointment of the Ombudsman in the Dominican Republic, a figure created by law 12 years ago is "urgent" but that so far no one appointed.

"The Dominican people deserves a defender that is independent, with wide experience and deep knowledge of the system of protection and promotion of human rights, with management of the gender approach," said in a statement released in the country Chiara Liguori, researcher of AI on the Dominican Republic.

He argued that "because of the partisan interests and the inaction of the authorities, those who suffer abuses of human rights in the Dominican Republic deprived of mechanisms of resources that the Ombudsman could offer".

AI announced in the notice that several Dominican human rights groupings to be delivered to the President of the country, Danilo Medina, "hundreds of petitions" of local citizens and other countries to ask for the establishment of the Office of the Ombudsman.

The figure of the Ombudsman, "does not have to be seen as an international taxation" because "are we Dominicans who consider it as imperative because it would facilitate the reporting and investigation of abuses of human rights in the country", said the President of the National Commission of human rights (CNDH), Manuel María Mercedes by his side, on the same note,.

AI also recalled that on several occasions and to the Organization of the Nations United (UN) local authorities pledged to create the Office of the Ombudsman.

Equally, said that this year's local budget includes a chapter to the Ombudsman, "Although that was approved represents half of what was initially envisaged".
