Newly appointed human rights ombudsman Silverio Pinto says he is ready to ready to continue to implementing the Human Rights and Justice Provedoria’s (PDHJ) 10 year strategic plan.

A communications strategy to determine what difficulties people faced will be drawn up, Pinto said.

One male and one female ombudsman will be appointed soon.  

"Legally, an elected ombudsman can choose two or three deputies," Pinto said.

He called on Parliament to ensure the department was adequately funded into the future.  

"I am confident that with a sufficient budget, PDHJ will become stronger and better in the future," he said. 

Member of Parliament Angelina Rangel said she hoped the new ombudsman would bring PDHJ success.   

"I think he will be able to work closely with all institutions to develop and bring this state forward," she said.

She said Parliament would approve the PDHJ budget.
