“Cooperating with the Ombudsman of Thailand to Protect the Rights and Interests of Citizens Living in Foreign Countries

 

- The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the ACRC and the Ombudsman of Thailand extended for five years

 

On May 8, in Vienna, Austria, the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Ombudsman of Thailand in an effort to enhance the capacity for handling grievance complaints.

 

ACRC, as the Korean Ombudsman, has been committed to fostering exchange activities since signing the first MOU with the Ombudsman of Thailand in 2011. These activities included visiting counterparts to listen to the grievances of their respective citizens and ▲establishing an online channel for filing civil complaints in the mother language of citizens living in foreign countries.

 

The ACRC has agreed to extend the MOU as the previous MOU signed in 2018 between the ACRC and the Ombudsman of Thailand is set to expire in May 2023.

 

Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission and Chief Ombudsman of Thailand Mr. Somsak Suwansujarit, signed the original copy of the MOU during their visit to Vienna, Austria to attend the Board of Directors’ meeting of the IOI.

An ACRC Official said,“With the extension of the MOU, we look forward to the resumption of active exchanges between the two agencies, which have been halted due to COVID-19. We are confident that strengthening our capacity for handling grievance complaints through bilateral cooperation between the national Ombudsmen of the Republic of Korea and the Kingdom of Thailand will set a prime example in the global society.”
