Thousands of Albanian citizens will gain free access in the new justice system. Every individual that has no financial means will be given free legal assistance, exempting him from all kind of fees for civil, penal or administrative claim and any other issue related to the justice. All this positive change will be possible thanks to the new draft for judicial assistance.
This initiative has been already submitted to the parliament in the framework of a laws package that completes the justice reform. The citizens whose monthly incomes are lower compared to the minimal wage, those that are part of the social assistance scheme and the citizens whose annual incomes are lower than ALL 500.000 will benefit from this initiative.
Meantime every citizen who owns a 2nd house will not be given free legal assistance, despite the fact that he might fulfill the above mentioned criteria.
