Peter May, Permanent Secretary of the Department of Justice, has today announced the appointment of the Rev Dr Lesley Carroll as the new Prisoner Ombudsman for Northern Ireland.

The appointment was made following an open competition and Dr Carroll will take up office on 1 March 2019 for a term of three years.

Mr May said: “I would like to congratulate Lesley on her appointment. The role of the Prisoner Ombudsman is a challenging and vital one in the criminal justice system. I am confident Lesley will bring her extensive experience and skills to the role. I wish her every success for her term of office.”

Mr May added: “I wish to place on record my sincere thanks to Brendan McGuigan for covering the responsibilities of the Prisoner Ombudsman since the retirement of the previous Ombudsman in August 2017. With his support, the important work of the Prisoner Ombudsman’s Office continued until an appointment could be made.”
