Special Tribunal for the alleged war crimes in Kosovo, has started to recruit its staff. In total, 59 vacancies have been announced for the court’s administration.
The Special Tribunal will function with the laws of Kosovo, but its head office will be in the Hague, Holland.
Last year, institutions of Kosovo approved all the necessary normative acts for this Special Tribunal to start its work.
The Tribunal, which is expected to be fully functional within a year, will indict former KLA members who have been involved in killings, kidnappings, unlawful imprisonment and persecution of Serbs, Roma and Albanians of Kosovo who were believed to collaborate with the Serb regime.
Those who are found guilty will suffer their sentences in the countries which are ready to admit them.
The same model has been used by the International Tribunal for former Yugoslavia, but the new tribunal has not yet signed an agreement with countries which may be interested, although these countries are expected to be within the EU. /balkaneu.com/
