Complaint secretariat for women to be established
Karachi: Ombudsman Sindh Asad Ashraf Malik has assured the newly-appointed Ombudsman for protection of women against harassment at workplace, Syed Pir Ali Shah, of the setting up of Women Complaint Secretariat. He also promised informal staff training by experienced functionaries.
This was discussed when Shah called on the ombudsman Sindh at his office on Thursday. Malik said the appointment of Shah was done at the right time as cases of harassment against women were on the rise.
Shah expressed confidence in performing his duties with full devotion, said Malik.
Appreciating the gesture of Malik, Shah said both the institutions shared similar objectives for the resolution of complaints and grievances.
Mussrat Hilali, federal women’s ombudsman for protection of women against harassment at workplace, had earlier met Malik to exchange views in this regard. The Sindh ombudsman had assured her of full cooperation of his secretariat in connection with the hearing and disposal of such cases.
