SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, 12 (EUROPA PRESS)
The Xunta de Galicia will be responsible, together with the corresponding bar association, of facilitating the necessary means to comply with the defense of those who have recognized the right to free legal assistance in judicial proceedings “of an exceptional and extraordinary nature.”
This is indicated in the order published this Monday in the Official Gazette of Galicia (DOG), in which it is established that the autonomous government, through the Primeira Vice Presidency and Consellería de Presidencia, Xustiza e Turismo, may formalize an agreement with the bar associations to “articulate the necessary technical, material, human or economic means” and guarantee “the optimal conditions of free legal defense”.
The order affects those persons who have recognized the right to free legal assistance and also establishes another condition regarding “procedures of an exceptional and extraordinary nature.” The agreement will become effective when, in the process, “the lawyer’s performance significantly exceeds the workload that can be considered ordinary for each type of procedure,” the Ministry has clarified in the provision.
This publication, with a single article, modifies and is added to the order of November 30, 2020, according to which it was established “economic compensation to bar associations for the actions of their members in the field of free legal assistance during the fourth quarter of 2020 and the first, second and third of 2021 “.
The consellería has indicated that the objective is “to avoid that the designated lawyer cannot develop his work with the minimum means”. “In this way, a complementary system is articulated for the necessary institutional assistance, as well as the opportune mechanisms of economic support charged to their expenditure budgets, in order to achieve the greatest possible efficiency in the allocation of economic resources associated with the right to free legal assistance. “, has indicated the department of Xustiza.
