Pursuant to the provision in section 11(1) of the Parliamentary Ombudsman Act (consolidating Act no. 349 of 22 March 2013), the Ombudsman is to submit an annual report on his activities to Parliament. The report is to be published. In the report, the Ombudsman is among other things to highlight statements on individual cases which may be of general interest. The accounts of the cases in the report are to contain information about the explanations given by the authorities concerning the matters criticised (section 11(2) of the Parliamentary Ombudsman Act).
In accordance with the above provisions, I am hereby submitting my Annual Report for the year 2012.
Summaries of the cases of general interest selected for publication as part of the Danish version of the Annual Report are found in Appendix B.
