Huambo — The chairman of the Angolan Bar Association (OAA), Hermenegildo Cachimbombo has reaffirmed his institution's need of continuing to promote a range of training of citizens in order to raise the legal awareness of the population.
The official said so on Monday in the central Huambo province at a ceremony of free legal survey conducted among the local population.
During the event, that happened under the motto "Law for All", the official told Angop that such actions allow all citizens to have access to law and justice.
Referring to the country's Constitution, Hermenegildo Cachimbombo said that the access to law and justice should be guaranteed to all citizens, regardless their economic circumstances.
He said that within the OAA jurisdiction the law integrates the free legal assistance so that the population deprived of economic power may join freely the market to get a lawyer.
Similar events are also being held in the provinces of Luanda, Cabinda, Huíla, Cunene, Namibe and Benguela.
