As an example of “extraordinarily burdensome” process the registration of poor families in the state system was brought by the expert. The citizens who live very far from the ministry must physically present themselves to the ministry to submit the application. Scott Jacobs is convinced that it should be replaced by an online or postal application to make it easier for people to receive their legal protection.
