Staff of the Advocacy and Legal Advice Center (ALAC) conducted Mobile Camps in all in-habited islands of Vaavu Atoll and Addu Atoll for the purpose of providing free legal advice to victims and witnesses of corruption during October and December 2012 respectively.
ALAC, the only free legal advice center in Maldives, is established at Transparency Maldives. ALAC lawyers can be reached at the toll free number (800) 3003 567.
During the trips to the atolls, ALAC staff actively sought out persons who may be in need of legal advice. An Exchange Fellow from Transparency International Bangladesh accompanied the ALAC staff to provide legal advice and information to Bangladeshi workers in the atolls.
ALAC’s are set up by chapters of Transparency International in over 40 countries.
