The Ombudsman for Wales’s office upheld a Complaint against Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council’s Adult Social Services department Case 200901324.
The Ombudsman for Wales’ website states quite clearly what action the Ombudsman should take:
“Ombudsman will say what the public body should do to make amends to the complainant” did this happen?
At this time the Ombudsman for Wales’ website says, “There are no publications currently active within this category” for Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council.
Chris Franks and Andrew RT Davies Assembly members for South Wales Central wrote letters on the complainant’s behalf, Chris Franks writing several.
The complainant has also wrote to they' MP Ann Clwyd to help, but are waiting for a response; feeling that she is not interested in local people who have major problems with her Labour companions running Rhondda Cynon Taf Council.
The complainant now waits in anticipation for the Ombudsman for Wales’ office to publicise its findings. They have a copy of his report, and following the publication of the findings will provide the full story of what really happened, allowing you to make your own mind up. However the complainant doesn’t believe that the Ombudsman will publicise the findings for the case.
A large amount of money is involved and letters have been written to the Auditor General for Wales asking them to look into the case. Lets hope, Gillian Body investigates efficiently as the new Auditor General for Wales.
The question is should an 84 year old pay thousands for the mistakes of senior management at Rhondda Cynon Taf Council?
