We empower people to hold the police and other detaining authorities to account for abuses of power, unlawful operations and acts, and misconduct.
Our civil liberties and human rights Legal Team specialises in police law and civil actions. They draw on their wealth of experience to provide a thorough case assessment and offer a strategic vision to remedy the state’s failures. Our Lawyers are committed to ensuring that the state including the police are held accountable.
Our team works tirelessly to represent the interests of individuals, groups and organisations seeking to hold those in authority to account.
