The Advocacy & Legal Advice Center (ALAC) is one of the most dynamic new anti-corruption intervention experiments by the global TI movement. There are more than 40 ALACs in 40 countries, the majority in Eastern Europe.
ALAC is a complaints desk. It provides free legal services and assistance to victims and witnesses of corruption.
ALAC aims to create dialogue, informal feedback and working partnerships with government institutions charged with corruption. It is an avenue for advocacy and to educate the public on their rights and responsibilities to counter corruption.
Legal Advice and Assistance on Corruption Complaints
We will provide free legal advice to help you pursue your complaint. We will ensure that a formal complaint will be received by the law enforcement agencies for further action.
We will raise awareness on the different types of corruption issues. We will advocate on the rights and responsibilities of citizens in the fight against corruption.
We will work in support of the existing state authorities in strengthening their capacities to process complaints.
What ALAC does
