|Series Title||Annual Report|
The European Parliament published in December 1996 the annual report covering the activities of the European Ombudsman for the year 1995.
This document marks the commencement of the annual report of the activities of the European Ombudsman since its establishment in 1995. Therefore, the report starts with an inaugural text on the key aspects of the European Ombudsman.
A key point discussed in the report is the high number of complaints the European Ombudsman has received, in its first year of establishment, that fall outside his mandate.
The mandate of the Ombudsman, established by Article 195 of the EC Treaty, empowers him to receive complaints from any citizen of the Union or any natural or legal person residing or having its registered office in a Member State, concerning instances of maladministration in the activities of Community institutions and bodies with the exception of the Court of Justice and the Court of First Instance acting in their judicial role.
