Executive Director of Legal Aid Board to speak on PTD

Ms. Fatmata Claire Carlton – Hanciles, the Executive Director of the Legal Aid Board, will be among three Executive Directors of Legal Aid Institutions to speak at the World Justice Forum in April 2019 in The Hague, Netherlands.
The Forum will showcase work done in Sierra Leone, South Africa and Brazil in relation to Goal 16 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on access to justice with specific reference to Pre-trial Detention Indicator (PTD).
‘So far I suggested to demonstrate relevant work done in Sierra Leone, South Africa and Brazil. Since Sierra Leone has been one of the champions on Goal 16 too (including the PTD indicator), I think it would be great to showcase it obviously,’ the invitation reads.
The Legal Aid Board is one of the lead institutions for the implementation of Goal 16 in Sierra Leone. This invitation is in recognition of the work of the Board in promoting access to justice through primary justice services in remote communities and building inclusive society.
