An entrepreneur and philanthropist that advocates libertarianism. Protecting the rights of minorities by providing human development and governance through third sector initiatives both locally and internationally. Belal is a graduate of Law and Risk Management with a personal and professional interest in International Human Rights. Belal is determined to fight against the sustained pernicious effect of the government’s legal aid cuts on the poorest in society. Consequently, this is achieved by streamlining access to justice as ‘open source’ within the community to help improve the lives of the disadvantaged and those who cannot afford legal assistance through a network of local (pro bono publico) Solicitors.
Belal is passionate about helping others and endeavours to employ strategic thinking to counsel the PDA board in navigating through difficult times of austerity and making sure informed choices are made to the merits and limitations of the available strategies within the minority ethnic community.
