HBT and Herbert Smith Freehills have been working together for many years with Justice Without Borders (JWB), a cross-border non-profit that works in Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines to increase access to justice through legal advocacy.
In Indonesia, JWB has been supporting Indonesian victims of labour exploitation and human trafficking to seek cross-border compensation from their abusers.
Last year we helped one of JWB’s clients here with an affidavit for a Singapore court case that had to be translated into Indonesian and notarised here. Despite the challenges of the ongoing pandemic, we helped JWB to fulfil the signing formalities so that the affidavit could be accepted as evidence by the court.
We also assisted JWB in training staff at Indonesia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the legal systems of Singapore and Hong Kong. This was to facilitate JWB’s advocacy for Indonesian victims of labour exploitation and human trafficking in those two countries.
HBT has been a proud partner of JWB for many years, and we fully support JWB’s pursuit of justice across the region.
