ILF-Afghanistan Cited as Success by the German Government

In a report on progress in Afghanistan to the Bundestag (a federal legislative body in Germany), ILF-Afghanistan is cited as a success in institution building and governance. The report, authored by the federal government, states on page 40:

“In Afghanistan there are too few qualified defense attorneys. Therefore, the [German] federal government has for many years supported the criminal justice project of the International Legal Foundation (ILF). The ILF represents a third of the criminally accused and the majority of indigent individuals accused of crimes in Afghanistan and in addition operates legal clinical programs in a number of Universities. In 2011, the Afghan project of the ILF has been transferred, with international support, to the Afghan Ministry of Justice. Thus, the defense of indigent accused in Afghanistan has now been institutionalized.”
