Peja, 16 November 2017 – Lëvizja FOL organized today the conversation between the students and the President of the Basic Court in Peja, Kreshnik Radoniqi and the President of the Basic Prosecution in Peja, Agim Kurmehaj. The topic of this conversation was: Education and awareness raising of students about the phenomenon of corruption and the fight against it.

The President of the Basic Prosecution in Peja, Agim Kurmehaj, presented to the students the work of this institution and the steps they have taken to fight corruption. He encouraged students to apply for internship, to take part in court sessions because the practice with direct participation in the sessions will help students to exercise their profession in the future. He also invited students who have any questions or complaints about prosecution to appear in his office. “My office is open every Friday from 13am to 16pm for every citizen who has a complaint or request for a case, and you should not hesitate to file your complaints,” Kurmehaj said.

Also, the President of the Basic Court in Peja, Kreshnik Radoniqi, presented before the students the work that this Court is making in fighting corruption. He said justice is not sold for anyone and justice cannot be modified for anyone. “If one day you start working as a judge, you should know that there is no favor for each other, because justice will be harmed,” Radoniqi said.

For two years FOL has been organizing such conversations with students and prosecutors of the court in Pristina, and now it has started to hold these conversations in other cities as well.
