Team Children’s Ombudsman and National Ombudsman provide consultation hours for residents of Saba and St. Eustatius

Consultation hours for residents of Saba and St. Eustatius by the National Ombudsman and Children’s Ombudsman team from 7 to 14 February 2022

From 7 to 14 February 2022, a team of the National Ombudsman and the Ombudsman for Children will be back on Saba and St. Eustatius for office hours. Residents can visit the office hours free of charge to ask a question or submit a complaint about (government) bodies.

Corona measures
Due to the corona measures, the physical consultation hours could not take place in the past two years. After consulting the local authorities, the team has decided that it is now possible again. During office hours, the team takes into account the corona measures. That is why the office hours are outside, a host is present and we ensure sufficient distance and (hygiene) resources.

The team is pleased to be able to speak to residents again and look forward to meeting them.

Visit consultation hours
People with complaints about, for example, the Tax Authorities, the Public Prosecution Service, the police, the Public Entity, Care and Youth in the Caribbean Netherlands can contact the team of the National Ombudsman and Ombudsman for Children free of charge at the following times:
