Summary

On 13 January, in a meeting between the chief prosecutor, prosecutors of the Prishtinë/Priština basic prosecution and members of the oversight commission for fighting corruption and economic crimes, an anti-corruption and economic crimes unit was established within the department of serious crimes of the Prishtinë/Priština basic prosecution.

The prosecutors who will work for the unit, expected to become operational as of 1 February 2016, were also nominated. Establishment of this unit comes following the Mission’s support to the Kosovo anti-corruption co-ordinator. During 2015 the Mission also provided recommendations and engaged in building the capacities of prosecutors throughout Kosovo with the aim to standardize and harmonize their practices as well as improve their efficiency in fighting corruption and economic crimes.
