On 29 and 30 March 2022, EULEX and EUKOJUST together with the Kosovo Justice Academy, organized a joint workshop for judges and prosecutors, especially the ones working in high-profile cases at the Special departments of the Basic Court Pristina and the Court of Appeal, and at the SPRK. The topic of the workshop was the protection needed and required for judges and prosecutors while dealing with corruption and other similar types of cases.
The topic raised a lot of interest for the participants, allowing a fruitful exchange of ideas and professional experiences. The first day of the workshop was dedicated to establishing the international and domestic legal basis for the support required, followed by identifying and thoroughly debating potential risks and threats the judges and prosecutors are or may be confronted with. During the second day, media representatives were invited for an in-depth discussion on the role media is playing in conveying various messages, while the rest of the day was dedicated to thorough debate regarding means and mechanisms to address the perceived threats.
EUKOJUST was glad to partner with EULEX in delivering this activity by moderating the workshop and providing solid professional expertise to the debates. Such inter-institutional cooperation within the EU-family was highly appreciated by all participants and will certainly continue in the future.
