Legal professionals strengthened their capacity to assist refugees from Ukraine

136 police officers, judges and prosecutors from more than 20 localities of the Republic of Moldova strengthened their knowledge in the field of refugee protection rights and learned more about the coordinated response targeted to refugees needs, tackling biases and non-discrimination practices.

The trainings were organised by the Lawyers’ Law Centre, in the framework of the project “Strengthening access to justice through legal empowerment of refugees in Moldova”, funded by Sweden through the UNDP Global Programme for Strengthening the Rule of Law, Human Rights, Justice and Security for Sustainable Peace and Development.

“This course was a valuable opportunity for legal professionals to better understand the problems faced by refugees and asylum seekers from Ukraine and to provide practical solutions,” mentioned Alexander Zubco, Head of Torture Prevention Department, Ombudsperson Office.

During the trainings case studies were analysed and ways of interaction and the type of assistance to be provided in different situations identified.
