Failure to comply with the Law on Crime Victim Compensation
The Kosovo Law Institute (KLI) has published the report “The failure of the courts to complete the Program for Compensation to Victims of Crime”. Researchers from KLI stated that the analysis of this report shows that the courts have not implemented the Law on Crime Victim Compensation and have not stayed close to the victims.
This organization has analyzed 370 judgments by the courts, 185 of them of 2018, and their analysis has confirmed that 50 percent of cases have not implemented Law on Crime Victim Compensation. Some of the main problems for non-implementation of the legislation are the lack of proper notification of the victims regarding their rights to compensation and non-implementation of the law by the courts, especially the Court of Appeals.
