Legal assistance – Karachi

Legal assistance is provided by SHARP, with support from refugee elders for local issues.

The refugee communities are scattered throughout the city and would benefit from greater outreach by UNHCR.

Special training sessions should be arranged for the judiciary in particular, in areas where arrests and detentions are highest in number.

Developing protection committees that would include local police and refugee community elders would help to reduce the incidence of often unnecessary arrests in the city.
