The Non-Discrimination Ombudsman
The Non-Discrimination Ombudsman is an autonomous and independent authority. The task of the Ombudsman is to promote equality and to prevent discrimination. The Ombudsman also supervises removal from the country and is the National Rapporteur on Trafficking in Human Beings. The Ombudsman further works towards improving the rights and status of foreign nationals.
Human trafficking is a serious offence in which the offender uses different methods to subject the victim to exploitation, and in many cases, this is done to achieve financial gain. The Non-Discrimination Ombudsman is the National Rapporteur on Trafficking in Human Beings. The aim of the Rapporteur is to ensure that the victims of human trafficking are identified and receive help and that their rights are enforced.
One of the duties of the Non-Discrimination Ombudsman as an external and independent authority is to monitor the removal from the country of foreigners being deported or refused entry. The goal of monitoring removal from the country is to develop the forced-return process so that the activity is humane and respects human rights.
