Kosovo (Serbia): The challenge to fix a failed UN justice system

By AI International Secretariat, , Index number: EUR 70/001/2008

This report describes the failure of the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) International Judges and Prosecutors Programme (Programme) to end impunity for war crimes and crimes against humanity, to comply with international law and standards concerning the right to fair trial and to leave a legacy of experienced and well trained prosecutors, judges and defence lawyers able to try such crimes. The Programme was created in 2000, after the collapse of the judicial system in Kosovo.
