Expanding Justice In Myanmar

The indigent accused of Myanmar are in dire need of legal representation in order to avoid lengthy pre-trial detention and unjust sentencing practices. With our offices in Yangon and Mandalay producing excellent results, we’re expanding into more areas to further our mission. This week, our Program Director traveled to the districts of Pathein and Myitkyina to observe the legal process there and meet with senior government officials and members of the Bar. She found a welcoming environment with challenges suited to the ILF’s expertise, and negotiated several commitments for aid in the region. We’ll continue to keep you informed on our progress as we assist Myanmar in its exciting transition. See the gallery below for photos and more!
