    Judicial and prosecutorial system promotes and protects democratic values, peace, security and human rights. Unfortunately, a substantial number of users of judicial and prosecutorial services do not have sufficient information on what going to court entails, information about legal procedures, or who to contact in relation to a specific case. We understand that this lack of information can cause anxiety over visiting these institutions or in facing the situations which you do not think can be resolved without recourse to courts/prosecutorial services.

    Principles of equality and non-discrimination, which presume equality before the law, are the basis of international human rights law. To ensure the respect for these principles, countries around the world are required to provide efficient legal aid to the most vulnerable, socially-marginalized categories of the population, to serve the interests of justice. Low-income citizens, who do not have the means to pay for legal services, are a vulnerable group, which cannot effectively protect its rights and interests from the State. Their right to have access to courts and other judicial organs is severely restricted by their means.
