Haiti - Justice : Adoption in Council of Ministers of a bill on legal assistance
The bill on the creation and organization of a National Council of Legal Assistance (CNAL) was adopted in the Council of Ministers, confirmed us Tuesday the Secretary General of the Council of Ministers.

In order to make justice accessible to the economically disadvantaged and the vulnerable in our society, the Government has drafted this Bill in accordance with the requirements of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international conventions and agreements signed by Haiti on the matter.

This bill proposes to create a National Council of Legal Assistance, offering counseling and advocacy services to the poor, irrespective of gender, age and political opinion, with administrative and financial autonomy under the supervision of a Board of Directors chaired by the Minister of Justice.

Recall that legal assistance is recognized throughout the world as a fundamental human right, without which one can not speak of a system of fair justice nor of respect for the rule of law. It should also be noted that this public service proposed in this draft law has been inspired on the basis of observations and experiences already made in Haiti.
