The Advocacy & Legal Advice Centre (ALAC) is an anti-corruption intervention programme set up by the global Transparency International movement.

The ALAC is a community service that provides free and confidential legal advice to witnesses and victims of corruption.

Examples of corruption are: bribery, extortion, blackmail, nepotism, extortion, theft, embezzlement, misappropriation, abuse of authority.

What does ALAC do?

  1. Provides FREE legal advice and assistance on corruption complaints

The ALAC provides free legal advice to help you pursue your complaint. The ALAC also ensures that a formal complaint will be received by the law enforcement agencies for further action. We will also follow up with all referred cases until a resolution is received.

  1. Advocacy

The ALAC raises awareness on the different types of corruption issues. We also advocate on the rights and responsibilities of citizens in the fight against corruption.

  1. Strengthening institutions

We work with existing state authorities in strengthening their capacities to process complaints.

Goal

The ALAC  seeks to translate concerns on corruption into structural changes for better governance. It is an avenue for advocacy and to educate the public on their rights and responsibilities to counter corruption.

  • The ALAC does NOT investigate individual cases of corruption ( ALAC does not gather evidence for your case).
  • The ALAC does NOT prosecute cases of corruption (ALAC does not represent clients in court).
