We have all come through that process and I feel happy when I see these new faces emerging, trying to express themselves,” Kohli said.Also Read | Virat Kohli clears the air on MS Dhoni tribute which sparked ex-captain’s retirement rumoursAlso Read | India chief selector MSK Prasad on MS Dhoni retirement speculation: It is incorrectAlso Read | Quinton de Kock has got an incredible cricket brain: David Miller ahead of 1st T20I vs Indialast_img read more

Le rapport annuel démontre une plus grande sensibilisation

first_imgLe Bureau de l’ombudsman déclare que ses efforts de sensibilisation ont augmenté de 51 pour 100 en 2009-2010 grâce à un plus grand accent mis sur les jeunes, les aînés, les services correctionnels et la diversité. Dans son rapport annuel déposé aujourd’hui 2 décembre, l’ombudsman Dwight Bishop indique que les citoyens comprennent mieux le Bureau et son rôle. L’année dernière, le Bureau a traité un total de 2 271 plaintes, demandes et examens. En tout, 1 744 demandes relevaient de la compétence du Bureau, ce qui correspond à une augmentation de deux pour cent. Le Bureau a formulé 37 recommandations officielles, dont trois n’ont pas été acceptées et font l’objet de discussions supplémentaires dans le rapport. « En général, nous sommes satisfaits de la réaction de la plupart des ministères du gouvernement à nos demandes et à nos recommandations, a dit M. Bishop. Toutefois, les délais de mise en œuvre de nos recommandations ont été inacceptables dans certains cas. » Le Bureau continue de traiter des questions complexes et délicates par l’entremise d’examens systémiques en profondeur des politiques et des procédures. Un résumé des enquêtes est inclus dans le rapport ainsi qu’une répartition des enjeux et des plaintes abordés au cours des cinq dernières années dans le domaine des services correctionnels. Vingt-trois demandes relatives à la divulgation d’actes fautifs ont également été reçues, et cinq enquêtes ont été entamées. Il s’agit du plus grand nombre de demandes reçues dans une province où il existe un processus de divulgation. « Le processus est en place depuis 2004 et nous avons remarqué une augmentation graduelle du niveau de confiance des fonctionnaires dans ce processus, » a dit M. Bishop. Le rapport inclut un aperçu des recommandations formulées par l’ombudsman depuis l’adoption du règlement sur la divulgation d’actes fautifs.
