Justice Ministry to provide on-the-spot legal advice

The Justice Ministry plans to set up a local legal advice system to provide assistance to people in their home towns, Minister József Petrétei told a local government forum on Thursday.

The current national judicial service, commonly called as "the people's attorney", that has offices in Hungary's county-seats and provides legal services free of charge, will send its officials to local governments on certain days to meet people with legal problems in order to save the poorest from the cost and effort of traveling, Petrétei said. The extended service has already been put into practice in western Hungary's Veszprém County, and has received positive feedback, and this is why the ministry has decided to introduce it all over the country, the minister said.
