My name is Sylvester, from Ghana. I am a trained Paralegal and an Advocate with 9 years’ experience in human rights practice and protection with regional focus in Africa, capacity building, prisoners’ rights, advocacy, public education, team building, rule of law, collaboration/networking expertise, and legal reforms within Ghana’s criminal justice sector. Regarding my experience on how I see the law not fairly working for people in my area stems from my engagement with pre-trial detainees. Normally, these people spend long periods in pre-trail detention without their cases being heard within a reasonable period of time or alternatively being released on bail subject to conditions that will ensure they re-appear to stand trail as stipulated by law. Mostly, these are persons who do not have the financial means to engage the services of a lawyer.
