The project Support to Anti-Corruption Efforts in Kosovo (SAEK II) is expected to have a positive impact on reducing the level of corruption in Kosovo by strengthening monitoring and oversight mechanisms of institutions to perform in an efficient, transparent, accountable, and gender sensitive manner. In 2018 UNDP SAEK signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Kosovo Judicial Council whereby UNDP will support the Supreme Court in its anti-corruption efforts, including through implementing sentencing guidelines and conducting a review of completed corruption cases.
Given that administration of justice could be heavily compromised by undue influence and corrupt behaviours, the SAEK II project, with the full support of the main judicial actors will analyse the evolvement of the finalized corruption cases in Kosovo courts, namely their progress from the investigative phase, including investigation and police activities extending to the courts’ undertakings, including final judgments and confiscation of assets.
The final report will be an internal document for the use of the Supreme Court and Chief Prosecutor that addresses potential identified deficiencies that were encountered through an analytical review of court cases. The cases (no more than 20 in total) to be reviewed shall be selected in close cooperation with the Supreme Court President and the Kosovo Chief Prosecutor. No less than half of the total number of cases reviewed will be randomly selected in order to preserve an objective approach towards the analytical review process.
The analytical review will be writ-based and shall not include any interview, discussion or interlocution of any kind of form with any of the parties involved in the selected cases. The analytical review will be used exclusively as an internal tool for the Supreme Court and Prosecution to identify areas for improvement on corruption cases in general and not a critic of individual decisions taken by the parties involved in any of the selected cases in particular.
To this end, SAEK seeks to engage a local expert, to work alongside the international expert, to conduct an analytical review of completed corruption cases in the courts of all instances, and review of actions at all stages and instances of the criminal procedure in selected cases.
