Unite wants RMJ to be saved and provided with proper legal aid funding to ensure vulnerable members of society have real access to justice.
The largest provider of specialist legal advice for asylum seekers and other vulnerable migrants in England and Wales, the RJM went into administration on June 16 2010.
Formerly the Refugee Legal Centre, RMJ was founded in 1992. Last year alone, it helped over 11,000 people.
Its closure would deprive thousands of vulnerable people legal representation. It is apprehended many will face return to countries where they face persecution.
Till date the Ministry of Justice has declined to help RMJ. was founded in 1992 and in the last year alone has helped over 11,000 people.
Faced with closure due to delays in payment for its legal aid work, the organisation has already sought public support.
The RMJ has asked all concerned about `the future of legal representation for the most vulnerable’ to join the campaign to save it from closure.
If you want information on the campaign, or wish to know how you assist in the matter, you can get in touch with Kathleen Commons: 020 7780 3271/07872 161 271.
