Not infrequently, individuals can find themselves arrested and detained or having to surrender their passport and be prohibited from travelling. The situation can persist for weeks, if not months. Consular assistance is generally well intentioned, but limited. Finding and arranging the right representation, arranging bail, restoring travel rights and assisting with the investigation generally are beyond the remit of consular assistance. At Lux & Veritas our crisis management team can act swiftly to address these key issues. Our communications advocacy and network of contacts can prove invaluable in bringing matters to a speedy and positive conclusion.
