“Today I met a man who believed the UK Government was complicit in his torture. During interrogations abroad, his torturers asked questions that indicated the UK worked with them. He believed UK agents were present at times. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I sought disclosure, questioned UK authorities & investigated his allegations.

THIS CASE WOULD BE BARRED BY THE “RESIDENCE TEST”.

EXCEPTIONS ARE NOT ENOUGH.”

THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I was able to return a disabled adult back into his father’s care.

“Today I met the single father of a young adult with learning difficulties. The local authority removed his son from his care, placing him in a respite facility & depriving him of his liberty. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I successfully applied to the Court of Protection to have his son return home.”
