Prime Minister the Hon. Bruce Golding has expressed regret at the recent passing of Jamaica’s first Parliamentary Ombudsman, Errington George Green, who died at the age of 83.
Mr. Golding noted that Ombudsman Green, an attorney-at-law, established himself as one who provided exemplary service to his country for over 50 years.
Throughout his years in the government service, E.G. Green served as Clerk of the Court, Acting Crown Counsel, Acting Resident Magistrate, and was also appointed the first judge of the Gun Court in 1974.
“Jamaica has lost another great son of the soil, a man who stood for equal rights and justice for every Jamaican, a man who earned and deserved all the honours and prestigious awards bestowed on him throughout the years. These included the Commander of the Order of Distinction and the award of Honorary Life Member of the International Ombudsman Institute,” said Prime Minister Golding.
Mr. Golding implored Jamaicans to exemplify the former Ombudsman who gave of his best to his country through his many years of service. Mr. Golding has conveyed sympathies on behalf of the Government to Ombudsman Green’s family, friends and associates.
