The correct use of the official languages in judicial and prosecutorial systems in Kosovo is of outmost importance to guarantee international fair trial standards and access to justice for all.
With the support of the Office of Language Commissioner and together with the Language Units at Kosovo Judicial Council (KJC), and Kosovo Prosecutorial Council (KPC), EUKOJUST assessed the quality and the efficiency of translations of the non-majority languages for judicial and prosecutorial systems.
The main findings of the report were presented today in front of key stakeholders and beneficiaries. Participants of the conference also discussed ways to improve the support provided to KJC and KPC by the international stakeholders in terms of capacity building to interpreters and translators.
The report, drafted by the EUKOJUST Access to Justice Expert, Alina Matache, recommends amendment of the existing regulation on certified translators and interpreters or eventually drafting a new Regulation that will provide norms and standards with the view to improve quality of such services
