In my home country, I can get advice from any lawyer I know and
trust - I will probably pay, but probably I can get somebody who will
not rip me too much. If I have to pay for a Finnish lawyer who knows
Finnish law (and I might only talk Tagalo - Probably no Finnish
lawyers speak Tagalo!), well... you see, it is a bit unfair to me, as
I have no means of defending myself!
