Mr. Molgos taking his oath at the Vanuatu Ombudsman's Office

On 14 March 2018, the Head of State signed an instrument of appointment appointing Mr Alain Wai Molgos as the Acting Ombudsman of the Republic of Vanuatu.

This development came about 3 months after Mr Kalkot Mataskelekele’s term came to an end on 18 December 2017. Staff members welcomed the appointment and are happy that an Acting Ombudsman is at last appointed.
