Co-operatives play a vital role in empowering people struggle together economically in order to fight poverty and improve their social economic situations.

Their rights and duties must unequivocally be defined and protected within the context of a well-defined legal frame work.

It is the function of the tribunal, while those rights are violated to stand tall and defend those rights.
