Dear citizens, 

Welcome on the website of the Public Defender of Rights. I believe that you will find here all the necessary information not only about my activities, but also about the activities of the Office of the Public Defender of Rights, about its competencies and powers or about the ways to file your complaints.

I wish the state would function for the people and in terms of democratic principles of good governance. I consider it very important and accordingly I would also like to markedly contribute to improved operation of the public administration bodies. I will devote my energy and time above all to make our country really good place for life and to make people feel better here.
