NAVIGATING THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE SPACE POST-PIL COURT RULING ON P3 FORM

In July 2017, Legal Resources Foundation Trust (LRF) filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) as a response to its survey finding that P3 Forms access was stifling access to justice for poor litigants, especially survivors of violence, including SGBV and domestic violence since some form of unreceipted payments were demanded by duty bearers from the survivors in order to access P3 Forms. The successful petition was filed, heard and determined before Embu High Court which ruled on 4th day of april 2019, that victims should have free access to this very vital prosecutorial document. The intervention was conducted with support from Trocaire in a project titled: Action to adopt, strengthen and promote the protection of survivors of sexual and gender-based violence among women and girls, and enhancement of their ability to access justice through sound and enforceable policies and legislations to reduce their vulnerability. Such charges put a strain on poor survivors who usually give up their right to pursue justice. And this is a travesty.
