Help convicts get counsel for appeal, lawyer tells Bar, prisons department
PETALING JAYA: A lawyer has urged prison authorities to work with state Bar committees to ensure that those who are appealing to a higher court while already serving time in jail are able to obtain legal representation.
KA Ramu said prison officials could communicate with the committees who would find lawyers registered under the National Legal Aid Foundation (YBGK) to appear for appellants, especially those seeking to maintain or reduce their punishments.
