ICJ holds strategic litigation meeting with Muslim Attorney Centre in Thailand’s deep South

On 11-12 October 2014, the ICJ held a “Strategic Litigation” meeting for 25 Muslim Attorney Centre (MAC) lawyers and paralegals in Hat Yai, in Thailand’s deep South.

The objective of the meeting was for MAC lawyers to discuss and exchange litigation strategies with a leading international criminal lawyer.

The meeting focused on the use of expert witnesses, forensic evidence and the appellate jurisdiction.

MAC was founded by a group of Muslim lawyers in February 2007 to provide free legal aid to disadvantaged people in the four southernmost provinces of Thailand, especially those who have been affected by the special security laws in place including Martial Law and the Emergency Decree.
