Meeting with the President of the Basic Court in Prishtina, Afërdita Bytyçi

Prishtina, 20 February 2018 – Representatives from the Movement FOL met today with Ms. Afërdita Bytyçi, President of the Basic Court in Pristina. During this meeting were discussed about the work in the Basic Court in general, with particular emphasis on the large number of cases of corruption in this court.

The President of the Court Ms. Bytyci said that the large number of cases of this nature are a consequence of the transfer from previous years. “Apart from the transfer of cases from previous years, there is also the very small number of judges in this court,” Bytyci said, adding that although they have a budget for admission to new judges, I do not know where the job was stuck recruiting them.

The Basic Court of Pristina has statistics officers, who are engaged in this post with a contract on act.

This grant is funded by the Democratic Society Promotion (DSP) project – funded by the Swiss Cooperation Office in Kosovo (SDC) and the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DANIDA) and managed by the Kosovo Civil Society Foundation (KCSF).
