Legal AID’s Objectives

ADHOC provides different types of legal assistance to victims. Depending on the cases the Human Rights and Legal Aid Section will:

  • Incur the legal fees of the victim’s defence
    Incur the fees associated with legal defence of those wrongfully accused
  • Hold regular meetings with victims and their families in order to analyse their situation and provide them with legal counsel
  • Assist victims in drafting their complaints
  • Incur the costs of the preparation of evidence, for example independent medical certificates and legal reports, required for the prosecution of the perpetrators
  • Monitor the judicial proceedings
  • Cover transportation and accommodation costs for victims to attend judicial proceedings

In cases where ADHOC does not have the capacity to provide assistance, we will arrange for one of our partner organizations specializing in legal aid to assist.
