LYNETTE ANTHEA STEPHENSON, S.C is Trinidad and Tobago's third Ombudsman, having been sworn in on February 20, 2006.

Ms. Stephenson has had a long and distinguished career in the public service of Trinidad & Tobago, having served, between 1976 and 1996, in several legal capacities from Temporary State Counsel II to Deputy Solicitor General. She was appointed Solicitor General in 1996.

 

She has also held directorships on the boards of state-owned companies including National Fisheries Company Ltd., Trinidad and Tobago Meat Processors Ltd. and the Petroleum Company of Trinidad and Tobago Ltd.

In addition, Ms. Stephenson has served as a member of key Cabinet-appointed committees, including the Standing Committee on Negotiation of Bilateral Air Services Agreements, the Trinidad and Tobago Steering Committee on the Unitization of Cross-border Hydrocarbon Reservoirs and as a member of the Team to negotiate a new Shareholders Agreement between Telecommunication Services of Trinidad and Tobago and Cable and Wireless West Indies.

 

Ms. Stephenson attained the status of Senior Counsel in November 2000. She believes the Office of the Ombudsman is vital 'because it gives people the reassurance that someone in authority is seeking their interest.'
