What We Do

Access To Justice

PROTECTION OF THE CIVIC AND DIGITAL SPACE

We provide legal interventions in the investigative reporting value chain while leveraging on our spread, tech know-how and huge social media presence to creatively assert the rights of journalists, media personnels and individuals. We support digital and media stakeholders with access to justice, data gathering, analysis, data visualization (infographics), legal education and strategic legal support/representation to protect entities, individuals and ideals.

TRACKING OF AWAITING TRIAL CASES

We track time spent by inmates on pre-trial detention vis a vis the time stipulated for remand in the Administration of Criminal Justice Act. Once the time the individual is spending exceeds the time provided by law, we file the necessary court documents to ensure their release or that they are tried.

PRO-BONO LEGAL REPRESENTATION

We are in the fore front of providing legal representations to pre-trial detainees who can’t afford the services of a lawyer. We specifically focus on cases that have been on trial for more than the provisions allowed by Administration of Criminal Justice Act with the aim of fast-tracking its hearing or striking it out.

DEFENDING VICTIMS OF HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS

We use tech to connect indigent persons whose fundamental rights have been violated to human rights lawyers. Through our podus platform, individuals, groups and community can get access to justice and recompense for violations like police brutality, extortion, intimidation, torture or any other degrading treatment contrary to the 1999 constitution and the African Charter on Human and Peoples rights.

SGBV KONNECT

We use our tech platform to monitor and defend cases relating to sexual and gender-based violence. We provide legal and sometimes psycho-social support to the victims until justice is done.
