There are now three Legal Aid Commission branches in the North after the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama opened their Nabouwalu office.
Prior to 2007, Northerners who seek the services offered by the Legal Aid Commission had to travel all the way to Labasa to access these.
Speaking at the event, Bainimarama assured members of the public that Government would continue striving to bring services closer to all Fijians.
“We will continue to come to you with the services and infrastructure you need to make life better and to secure an even brighter future,” Bainimarama said..
He urged Fijians to make good use of the services that were being provided in these offices.
The offices are in Labasa, Savusavu and Nabouwalu, with plans to open one in Seaqaqa by the end of July.
He also opened the new Birth, Death and Marriage Registry office in Nabouwalu..
