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.
Discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation is prohibited under the Non-Discrimination Act. The position and rights of LGBTI people, and the attitudes towards LGBTI people have become more positive over the past few decades but discrimination has not disappeared.
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.
