A two-day workshop focused on the Concept Document for realizing civil rights, including the right to fair trial within a reasonable time, started in Peja today, jointly organised by the Ministry of Justice and the EU-funded project EUKOJUST.
The workshop aims at drafting a concept document within a reasonable time by bringing together key stakeholders in the rule of law institutions and civil society.
In a diverse variety and composition of participants, including judges, civil servants, experts, and members of civil society, there was a fruitful exchange of views and contribution to ensure effective work in drafting the Concept Document, in the first day of the workshop.
The activity is part of the EUKOJUST Objective 4 Access to Justice, support to the Ministry of Justice on legislative initiatives on civil rights, and in line with the approved Kosovo Rule of Law Strategy and Action Plan.
The Strategy foresees an intervention directed towards increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of legal remedies through the improvement of the legal guarantees for judicial protection related to the achievement of fundamental rights in criminal, civil, and administrative matters. The goal is to enable citizens of Kosovo to benefit from the constitutional right to a fair trial within a reasonable time and making legal remedies available and effective in practice. The document will provide a set of solutions regarding effective legal remedies for cases involving delays in court proceedings.
