Court Monitoring Report 2018

Posted on

A new report by the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network monitored courts and prosecutors in Kosovo and found they are still failing to get adequate results in the fight against corruption.

The report, based on BIRN Kosovo’s monitoring of 520 court hearings, found that there was a fall last year in the number of resolved cases, in verdicts that imposed effective prison sentences, and in verdicts that imposed fines or parole sentences. On the other hand, there was a drastic increase in acquittals and cases that were dropped.

All the result show that there is a deterioration in the fight against corruption in terms of the number of accused persons as well as in the number of punishable verdicts.
