I am advised by Oberstown that the Ombudsman for Children visits Oberstown Children Detention Campus and meets with children on a regular basis. The Ombudsman for Children undertakes investigations under the Ombudsman for Children Act 2002. The Ombudsman has undertaken one such investigation in relation to Oberstown and I am advised by Oberstown that it recently received a copy of a draft report of this investigation.
