The Ombudsman has accused four ministries -Finance, Justice, Transport and Universities-, four autonomous communities -Canary Islands, Catalonia, Madrid and the Basque Country-, the autonomous city of Melilla and 136 local entities of being “non-collaborative” administrations ” with this body in 2022 by delaying in responding to the requirements of this body or, even, failing to do so.

This is stated in an annex to the annual report of the Ombudsman that has been published this Monday and where it is recalled that the current law requires that the administrations reply to this body on the information it needs for its actions.

“But the answer offered is not always immediate and in some cases, even though it is not the most frequent, it does not come to pass, after having been claimed on several occasions. In these cases, the Ombudsman can declare to the body or unit concerned as hostile or obstructing their functions”, explains the Ombudsman in his report.

Many of these requirements have to do with ordinary issues of town halls or minor local entities such as issues related to urban planning, urban waste, etc.

For this reason, the prevalent entities in this list are usually this type of administration. Here, the Ombudsman understands the shortcomings and lack of material and human resources in small municipalities and the difficulties that collecting certain information may pose for them.

However, from this body they assert that these difficulties do not exempt them from the obligation to reply to the Ombudsman.
