Legal counseling

The fight against corruption is most likely to be compromised by the sense of helplessness among citizens who find themselves exposed to it. The Foundation’s experts consult more than 100 corruption-related cases a year. We approach regulators and audit institutions asking them to investigate specific cases and on occasion we take part in the capacity of observers in court hearings of corruption cases. Legal advice is also provided through Legal Clinics at the universities which we support in the framework of our Legal Education Program.

Out of 654 cases people turned to us with in the years 2000–2006, in 120 we intervened in superior institutions, supervisory and controlling institutions, in 30 we appealed to the prosecutor’s office, and in 15 we participated as court observers.
