The Collective of Applied Law & Legal Realism (CALR) is the rapid delivery mechanism of AmerBON, Advocates’ pro bono services.
CALR hosted the Legal Aid Chit Chat Clinic No. 3 on 12 May 2020 to consider questions about the one-day parliament sitting and the ubiquitous police roadblocks during the Movement Control Order (MCO).
The topics discussed included:
- the power of police officers to question drivers and conduct searches during roadblocks
- employment issues, occupational health and safety, standard operating procedures, pay cuts, and illegal cost-cutting means
- one-day parliamentary sitting and urgent issues that need to be debated in Parliament
The discussion on the right to health was postponed to the following session.
