When a person travels overseas they leave behind their Country's legal support systems, emergency service capabilities and medical facilities. Whilst your Government is obliged to provide prisoner support, there may be limitations.
Our aim is to offer information, advocacy and access to a network of support in the diplomatic, legal and academic fields.
Connecting with the right support is critical when you or your loved one is detained overseas.
There are mechanisms to redress an injustice. Foreign internment is a complex issue and needs to be managed expertly.
FPSS Advocates are credible and credentialed ... we can think strategically to align all the partnerships required to bring forth positive working relations. We can help you navigate the diplomatic minefield and negotiate best outcomes. We can work with consular staff and media to maintain the integrity of your support.
