FREE LEGAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAMME

j4a_comp1-134_kano

The frequency with which bloggers  activists and social network users are arrested in Nigeria is alarming . Many activists are arrested for exercising their right to freedom of information and expression. It is outrageous to hold them  in secret locations in order to interrogate them for days  without  end and leave their loved-ones thinking they have disappeared. We partner to provide free Legal assistance and advice to the needy and to victims of human rights violation.  We provide representation at the police station and in court . We give advice and assistance (written or in conference) including writing letter, negotiating, mediation etc and provide a wide range of services which include Legal counseling, financial/welfare assistance to a target group namely, women, youths and children either standing trial or in custody, payment of convicts fines, and integration into the society
