Free Legal Aid

Description
As we all know that the Zamboanga del Sur Provincial Jail is congested with inmates who are similarly situated with the detainees whom the good JCI Senator Antonio Cerilles has helped before and like them, they too need a second chance at life. In collaboration with the Provincial Government of Zamboanga del Sur and Mekas Gaming and Entertainment Corp, this Free Legal Aid aims to give teeth to the maxim “Those who have less in life must have more in law” and thus ensuring that justice is given on time. A free attorney is provided to deserving inmates.
Objectives
This project aims to help the correctional community (the people behind bars) in their total human development based on the principles of a balanced and restorative justice.
Action Taken
Raised during the joint GMM of JCI Greater Pagadian and JCI Yllana. Collaborated with our program partners.

130 members attended during the launching of FLA. Graced by Judge Dennis Vicoy and supported by our very own Governor Hon. Antono Cerilles. 100 inmates participated.
