Haiti - Justice : Launch of a special legal assistance program in Jérémie
This Thursday, June 22, the US Agency for International Development (USAID - Haiti) in partnership with the Federation of Bar Associations of Haiti (FBH), will launch a special legal assistance program (Project Justice « Sector Strengthening Program » (JSSP) / Haiti), for the citizens of the town of Jérémie (Grande-Anse Department) to recover their civil status documents lost during Hurricane Matthew in October 2016.

This 6-month legal assistance program, carried out in collaboration with the Jérémie Bar, will run until 2 December 2017. It is part of the mandate of the JSSP, which is a reinforcement program of the Justice Sector in Haiti established in September 2016, whose one of the objectives is to improve access to justice and the protection of the rights of vulnerable populations.

Under this Program, a Legal Assistance Office (BAL), located at the Bar of Jérémie (at the Court of First Instance), is set up to help victims recover the following legal documents free of charge : acts of birth, Baptism, marriage, death; National identity cards and title deeds.

The JSSP project also aims to support FBH in the strengthening of capacity of local authorities, community leaders and registrars in Jérémie's jurisdiction to better serve vulnerable populations through training sessions on legal procedures relating to civil status.

Note that a similar legal assistance program of the same duration is under way simultaneously in the Côteaux jurisdiction.
