    Summary

    In the context of a dispute regarding visiting rights, the court requested that the Social Welfare Board submit a so-called rapid information inquiry to the court. Before the Social Welfare Board provides such information they shall, when appropriate, consult with the parents of the child. The Social Services attempted to contact the mother by phone in response to the court’s request. The mother did not answer, and the social secretary therefore sent her a text message. The Parliamentary Ombudsman states that there are particular risks, e.g. risks to confidentiality, in using text messages for individual communication, and directs criticism towards the case officer that decided to contact the mother in this manner.
