(3)

Each Ombudsman may make any such investigation either on a complaint made to an Ombudsman by any person or of his own motion; and where a complaint is made he may investigate any decision, recommendation, act, or omission to which the foregoing provisions of this section relate, notwithstanding that the complaint may not appear to relate to that decision, recommendation, act, or omission.

An Ombudsman may hear or obtain information from such persons as he thinks fit, and may make such inquiries as he thinks fit. It shall not be necessary for an Ombudsman to hold any hearing, and no person shall be entitled as of right to be heard by an Ombudsman:

provided that if at any time during the course of an investigation it appears to an Ombudsman that there may be sufficient grounds for his making any report or recommendation that may adversely affect any department or organisation or person, he shall give to that department or organisation or person an opportunity to be heard.

(4)

In the case of an investigation relating to a department or organisation named or specified in Parts 1 and 2 of Schedule 1, an Ombudsman may in his discretion at any time during or after the investigation consult a Minister who is concerned in the matter of the investigation, and an Ombudsman shall consult any Minister who so requests or to whom a recommendation which is the subject of the investigation has been made, after the Ombudsman has made the investigation and before he has formed a final opinion on any of the matters referred to in subsection (1) or subsection (2) of section 22.

In the case of an investigation relating to an organisation named or specified in Part 3 of Schedule 1, an Ombudsman may in his discretion at any time during or after the investigation consult the mayor or chairperson of the organisation concerned, and an Ombudsman shall consult the mayor or chairperson of the organisation who so requests or to whom a recommendation which is the subject of the investigation has been made, after the Ombudsman has made the investigation and before he has formed a final opinion on any of the matters referred to in subsection (1) or subsection (2) of section 22.

(6)

If, during or after any investigation, an Ombudsman is of opinion that there is substantial evidence of any significant breach of duty or misconduct on the part of any officer or employee of any department or organisation, he shall refer the matter to the appropriate authority.

(7)

Subject to the provisions of this Act and of any rules made for the guidance of Ombudsmen by the House of Representatives and for the time being in force, an Ombudsman may regulate his procedure in such manner as he thinks fit.

19 Evidence

(1)

Subject to the provisions of this section and of section 20, an Ombudsman may from time to time require any person who in his opinion is able to give any information relating to any matter that is being investigated by the Ombudsman to furnish to him any such information, and to produce any documents or papers or things which in the Ombudsman’s opinion relate to any such matter as aforesaid and which may be in the possession or under the control of that person. This subsection shall apply whether or not the person is an officer, employee, or member of any department or organisation, and whether or not such documents, papers, or things are in the custody or under the control of any department or organisation.

(2)

An Ombudsman may summon before him and examine on oath—

(a)

any person who is an officer or employee or member of any department or organisation named or specified in Schedule 1 and who in the Ombudsman’s opinion is able to give any such information as aforesaid; or

(b)

any complainant; or

(c)

with the prior approval of the Attorney-General in each case, any other person who in the Ombudsman’s opinion is able to give any such information—

and for that purpose may administer an oath. Every such examination by the Ombudsman shall be deemed to be a judicial proceeding within the meaning of section 108 of the Crimes Act 1961 (which relates to perjury).

(3)

Subject to this section and to section 20(1), a person who is bound by the provisions of an enactment (being an Act or a legislative instrument within the meaning of the Legislation Act 2012 made by Order in Council) to maintain secrecy in relation to, or not to disclose, any matter may be required to supply any information to or answer any question put by an Ombudsman in relation to that matter, or to produce to an Ombudsman any document or paper or thing relating to it, even if compliance with that requirement would otherwise be in breach of the obligation of secrecy or non-disclosure.

(4)

Compliance with a requirement of an Ombudsman (being a requirement made pursuant to subsection (3)) is not a breach of the relevant obligation of secrecy or non-disclosure or of the enactment by which that obligation is imposed.

(5)

Every person shall have the same privileges in relation to the giving of information, the answering of questions, and the production of documents and papers and things as witnesses have in any court.

(5A)

In any investigation carried out under this Act pursuant to the Official Information Act 1982 or the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987, nothing in subsection (5) prevents an Ombudsman from—

(a)

requiring, under subsection (1), the furnishing of any information or the production of any document, paper, or thing for which privilege is claimed by any person; and

(b)

considering the information or inspecting any such document, paper, or thing—

for the purpose of determining whether the information, document, paper, or thing would be properly withheld, but not so as to give the Ombudsman any information, or enable the Ombudsman to make any use of the information, document, paper, or thing that he or she would not, apart from this subsection, be entitled to.

(5B)

On the production of any information, document, paper, or thing pursuant to subsection (5A), the Ombudsman—

(a)

must not release the information, document, paper, or thing, or any information derived from the document, paper, or thing to any person other than—

(i)

the producer of the information, document, paper, or thing; or

(ii)

any barrister or solicitor engaged by the Ombudsman for the purpose of providing legal advice as to whether the information, document, paper, or thing would be properly withheld by that producer under subsection (5); or

(iii)

a court:

(b)

may give his or her opinion only to the producer of the information, document, paper or thing and the complainant as to whether or not the claim of privilege is valid:

(c)

must not take into account the information or any information in the document, paper, or thing in forming any opinion concerning the release of any other information, unless the Ombudsman considers the claim of privilege is not valid and has notified the person concerned of that decision.

(6)

Except on the trial of any person for perjury within the meaning of the Crimes Act 1961 in respect of his sworn testimony, no statement made or answer given by that or any other person in the course of any inquiry by or any proceedings before an Ombudsman shall be admissible in evidence against any person in any court or at any inquiry or in any other proceedings, and no evidence in respect of proceedings before an Ombudsman shall be given against any person.

(7)

No person shall be liable to prosecution for an offence against any enactment, other than this Act, by reason of his compliance with any requirement of an Ombudsman under this section.

(8)

Where any person is required by an Ombudsman to attend before him for the purposes of this section, the person shall be entitled to the same fees, allowances, and expenses as if he were a witness in a court, and the provisions of any regulations in that behalf made under the Criminal Procedure Act 2011 and for the time being in force shall apply accordingly. For the purposes of this subsection an Ombudsman shall have the powers of a court under any such regulations to fix or disallow, in whole or in part, or increase the amounts payable thereunder.

20 Disclosure of certain matters not to be required

(1)

Where the Attorney-General certifies that the giving of any information or the answering of any question or the production of any document or paper or thing—

(b)

might involve the disclosure of the deliberations of Cabinet; or

(c)

(2)

Subject to the provisions of subsection (1), the rule of law which authorises or requires the withholding of any document or paper, or the refusal to answer any question, on the ground that the disclosure of the document or paper or the answering of the question would be injurious to the public interest shall not apply in respect of any investigation by or proceedings before an Ombudsman.

was unreasonable, unjust, oppressive, or improperly discriminatory, or was in accordance with a rule of law or a provision of any Act, regulation, or bylaw or a practice that is or may be unreasonable, unjust, oppressive, or improperly discriminatory; or

(c)

was based wholly or partly on a mistake of law or fact; or

(d)

was wrong.

(2)

The provisions of this section shall also apply in any case where an Ombudsman is of opinion that in the making of the decision or recommendation, or in the doing or omission of the act, a discretionary power has been exercised for an improper purpose or on irrelevant grounds or on the taking into account of irrelevant considerations, or that, in the case of a decision made in the exercise of any discretionary power, reasons should have been given for the decision.
