Advocacy, Protection and Legal Assistance to the Internally Displaced Population

R2P digest for October 2018 about internally displaced and conflict affected population


Here we present digest on IDPs and conflict affected persons for October prepared by R2P.  This digest has been produced with the assistance of the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) in the frame of the project Advocacy, Protection and Legal Assistance to the Internally Displaced Population.Highlights:

  • The demand for legal assistance from R2P with pensions is increasing, constituting 90% of all secondary legal assistance cases in October.
  • After the Supreme Court ruled favorably in R2P’s model case, the courts of lower instances resumed consideration of pension cases. The number of court cases has substantially increased, from 20-30 cases per month in the summer time to 99 in October, as a result.
  • Under Cabinet of Ministers (CMU) Resolution 795, persons who did not update their passport photos within a month of turning 25 or 45 must now obtain ID cards, which is more complicated (mainly, because it is time consuming).
