Prishtinë, 19 gusht 2019 – FOL Movement and BIRN Kosovo today present data from monitoring the publication of judgments in all Kosovo Courts. Through the following infographics you can see the publication of all judgments by all Kosovo courts for June 2019.
Publication of judgments by all Kosovo courts – June 2019
Clarification: The publication of judgments during the period of June 1 to June 30, 2019 was monitored for all Kosovo’s courts focusing on criminal, civil, commercial, and administrative departments. Additionally, this monitoring covered the publication of judgments according to judges from all courts and the abovementioned departments. The Division for Minor Offences judges were not monitored.
During the monitoring of judgments published in the Kosovo Judicial Council’s website, for the above-mentioned period, it has been noted that there is a total of 642 judgments published, or 36 more than BIRN and FOL have in their database. This difference in numbers is due to double publication of judgments, and other problems in the Council’s web portal when translating the site into Serbian. Additionally, during the month of June, it has been noticed that courts have published judgments made by judges who have been promoted to more senior positions, have been transferred to Minor Offence Division, or have retired. These shortcomings were noted during a detailed verification by BIRN and FOL.
