Judicial Integrity in Kosovo
Sep 15, 2014
In support of the implementation of Article 11 of the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) and as part of the UNDP project, Support to Anti-Corruption Efforts in Kosovo (SAEK), supported generously by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, UNODC jointly with UNDP will provide support to enhance the internal capacities and mechanisms of the judiciary & prosecution in Kosovo for investigating internal cases of corruption and disciplining of judges & prosecutors with regard to corruption offences; and to increase the ability of the judiciary to investigate and prosecute cases of corruption externally.
To set a strong foundation for the implementation of this project, UNODC and UNDP conducted an on-site assessment mission to assist the Kosovo authorities in conducting an internal needs assessment. It aimed at determining the legal, organizational and capacity development needs of the judiciary & prosecution to effectively investigate, prosecute and adjudicate cases of corruption both internally within the judiciary and externally.
