What are the public issues that are resolved in this commitment?

In strengthening the implementation of legal aid policies, it is necessary to strengthen an information portal that aims to provide a database and access to information for the public. Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic and post-pandemic, the need for information portals is higher as face-to-face services are limited, while the need for legal assistance remains. In addition to ensuring the availability and ease of access to information, the state also needs to ensure that citizens who access the information can easily understand and make decisions according to their needs. This means that legal aid information is not only socialised but also contains directions and education that makes it easier for users.

What is the commitment?

Development of a legal aid information portal containing realtime data and easily accessible to the public.

How will the commitment contribute to solving the public problem?

The information portal will maintain a centralised database that is updated with the data needed by the community. Concerning the protection of personal data, the confidentiality of the case handling database will remain guaranteed so that public access will be limited to that category of data. In addition, by updating the database, mapping of legal needs can be carried out. Later, this database will help allocate Legal Aid Organisations (OBH) that are tailored to local needs and types of assistance such as litigation or non-litigation.

Why is this commitment relevant to the Open Government values?

This commitment is in line with the Open Government values, namely transparency. Strengthening the legal aid database integrated in the information portal aims to increase the transparency of legal aid provision. In addition, public trust will also grow along with the existence of a database and access to accurate information.

Commitment Alignment with the National Medium Term Development Plan (RPJMN) and SDGs

The commitment will support the 16th SDGs Goal, namely Strengthening Inclusive and Peaceful Societies for Sustainable Development, Providing Access to Justice for All, and Building Effective, Accountable and Inclusive Institutions at All Levels target 16.3, namely promoting the rule of law at the national level. And internationally and ensure equal access to justice for all. In addition, this program is under the 2020-2024 RPJMN, page 272, regarding access to justice.
