The post of ombudsman in Karelia stays vacant

From the recent times the post of ombudsman in Karelia stays vacant despite the fact that control over observance of human rights in any of open societies is one of priority work directions for civil society and government. Similarly to changes in the state administration that testify for the importance of state work so the post of authorized on the human rights should not be vacant. Ideally this will not only prove the actuality and concern about observance of human rights in our republic but it will also mean that there is a person capable of protection of human rights and being the connecting link between society and government. Protection of human rights activity needs democratic institutions defending principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Second chapter of constitution of the Russian Federation which fixes in practice value of human rights. Karelian department of the “Youth Human Rights Group” would like to see Tatjana Alekseevna Simonova on this post. She is famous in public and abroad for her active civil position of a human. Moreover she is the leader of a charitable organization rendering aid to children-invalids “Blagodat’”, the protector of human rights, known for her hard-edged struggle against despotism and crimes in the armed forces and finally she is a very courageous woman. We think that she is the best candidate for the post of ombudsman in Karelia.
