International Ombudsman Institute (IOI) President John R. Walters visits the island of Grenada.
Mr. John Walters was invited by the head of the Human Rights Unit of the Commonwealth Secretariat Adviser Karen McKenzie to share his experience of a multi-functional office with stakeholders at a meeting in Grenada.
As the Government of Grenada is currently looking into the possibility of broadening the mandate of the Ombudsman and to include promotion and protection of human rights into it, the IOI President used the opportunity to visit the Ombudswoman Ms. Nadica McIntyre and her staff, Mr. Ronnie Marryshow and Marlon Benjamin.
After a very fruitful discussion the President encouraged them to apply for the IOI membership.
