Providing of legal advices to people that are victims of corruption is an ongoing activity since 2006, through Advocacy and Legal Advice Center of Transparency Serbia. Team of lawyers deals with each case individually offering solutions to the problem, while the issues that are recorded as the most frequent problems are addressed through initiatives before authorized state organs. Thus, addressing the problem from both sides, helping clients to act, raising awareness on existing legal instruments and systemic solution to the problem. Since March 2017 this project is supported by German Ministry of Foreign Affairs- Stability Pact for South-eastern Europe.

Why ALAC

One of the reasons why the fight against corruption does not give the full results so far is the fact that many citizens who are faced with this phenomenon does not know enough legal options that are available to them, or do not have sufficient confidence in the work of institutions these problems should be addressed to.

The main objective of the project anti-corruption legal advice centers therefore is to increase citizen participation in the fight against corruption, and to increase both the number of reported, and the number of solved cases of corruption. ALAC, (volunteers will work in cooperation with legal advisers) will receive calls from citizens, CSO and entrepreneurships who are victims or witnesses of corruptionand want to prevent it, or expose the corruption mechanisms.

ALAC operates in the following ways:

• Receiving a call through special telephone number 0800 - 081 - 081, weekdays from 11 am to 15 pm. Calls to this number are possible from any number of fixed telephony in Serbia and are completely free for citizens. A citizen who call this number can choose to remain anonymous or leave contact details. Volunteers from the ALAC will carefully note the contentious situation or problem that a citizen indicate and after consultation with lawyers, provide advice, in order to solve the problem.

• Receive e-mail at the address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. where citizens will be able to present contentious situation, submit documentation and seek advice. Received e-mails will be treated in a confidential manner.

• Receiving postal mail to the address Palmoticeva no. 27 (from April 1st 2016 new address is Palmoticeva 31), 11000 Belgrade. All received correspondence will be treated in a confidential manner.

• Schedule a meeting with legal counsel (free counseling for citizens).

Transparency - Serbia has no legal or financial means represent ALAC clients before the authorities. However, TS will monitor the outcome of cases initiated and removal of mechanisms that allow corruption to occur.

Your addressing to the ALAC will allow us to gain a better insight into the extent of corruption in certain areas and problems in the implementation of anti-corruption laws. Based on that, we will get a chance and compelling arguments to publicly engage it in the future to solve problems in the most urgent areas.

An important element of this project is cooperation with media that are specifically involved in the monitoring of corruption and the fight against corruption in Serbia. Our wish is to help citizens who are willing to discuss their problems and speak out, to easier access to media
