UNP to offer legal advice in all police divisions

The UNP has decided to make available two lawyers each to offer legal advice to any person who wants it at all police divisions around the country.

Speaking at an event in Colombo today UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said that every citizen had a right to seek fair justice for his or her grievances.

He said it was with this in mind that the UNP will nominate lawyers to represent anyone before the police or in court.

The UNP lawyers will accompany the complainant to the respective police station and to court.
