The case’s applications were filed between December 2012 and July 2018. When the Emergency Service, region west, responded to the Parliamentary Ombudsman’s referral in February 2019 none of the cases had been settled. Only in one case an application was complete. That case had been left without any measure for just over two and a half years.
