Justice Ministry to open four more free legal aid centres

The Justice Ministry will soon be opening more Legal Aid Centres (CPP) – in Humenné, Bardejov (both the Prešov Region), Hlohovec (the Trnava Region) and Rimavská Sobota (the Banská Bystrica Region), Justice Minister Štefan Harabin said on March 24.

The Justice Ministry will soon be opening more Legal Aid Centres (CPP) – in Humenné, Bardejov (both the Prešov Region), Hlohovec (the Trnava Region) and Rimavská Sobota (the Banská Bystrica Region), Justice Minister Štefan Harabin said on March 24.

He views the recent opening of the first three offices in Prešov, as well as Liptovský Mikuláš and Tvrdošín (both the Žilina Region) as a very positive step that has brought legal aid directly to poor regions.

"People from these areas now don't have to travel dozens of kilometres to Žilina or Košice," the ministry's spokesman Michal Jurči told the TASR.

The three newly-opened offices have already dealt with enquiries from over 200 people, who were mostly interested in alimony and property disputes.

Harabin also expressed his appreciation that the local self-administration bodies concerned provided space for the offices for a symbolic fee. TASR
