“What’s up with the Ombudsman?”
“Almost two months since ESM has posted anything. Where is he? What is he doing”
I asked Schumacher-Matos to solve the mysteries. He responded:
I am about to post a complicated piece now. But no mysteries: I have been on vacation, have gone through a change of two assistants in two months, killed a circular piece that didn’t pan out and have been very busy with internal and diplomatic matters, including preparing for my succession. My contract ends August 1. I should be looking for a new job! Any suggestions welcomed.
Will the position be filled or killed? “I think that I will be replaced,” he says.
