The Fijian Legal Aid Commission will be hosting a roadshow in Levuka this Saturday on 14 March, from 9 am to 3 pm.

The roadshows will be held opposite the Commission’s office in Levuka town and Fijians will be able to access their legal aid services for free.

The roadshows are an ongoing initiative as part of Legal Aid’s 3-year strategic plan to ensure that all Fijians have access to high-quality legal services even if they are unable to pay.

“We will be providing legal aid services that cover all areas of law like free drafting of wills and assistance on land-related issues to advice on criminal matters such as bail, mitigation and pleas,” said Legal Aid Director, Shahin Ali.

“Family matters will also be given a special focus to assist Fijians with difficult issues like divorce, maintenance, DVROs and Stop Departure orders.”
Services will not be strictly limited to legal issues with advice on issues with service providers and government departments also available.

“If you are facing issues with your water, electricity, social services or a delay from an authority on your applications for land or lease renewals, you can visit us and we can issue a letter on your behalf seeking an update,” said Mr Ali.

“You can even come down and give your concerns and complaints about any issues you may have faced when trying to access our services.”

The Commission has provided legal advisory services to thousands of Fijians and the roadshow is aimed at helping even more Fijians with free legal advice and assistance.
