Justice Centre Hong Kong has made a submission to the government with respect to the 2018-19 Budget consultation. The submission primarily discusses access to justice, including funding for legal assistance sector services. Justice Centre is concerned about the lack of not-for-profit Community Law Centres or their equivalent to provide specialist, free legal advice and representation. Justice Centre’s submission also addresses funding to support civil society participation in treaty body processes and the United Nations Universal Periodic Review, and training for government officials to combat trafficking in persons.
