Today, Gabriele Meucci, EULEX Head of Mission met Minister of Justice Hajredin Kuçi. The Minister briefed the HOM on the Brussels facilitated Pristina/Belgrade agreement on the integration of the judiciary. HOM Meucci assured the MOJ that EULEX stood ready to assist in its implementation.
During the meeting, Minister Kuçi informed the EULEX Head of Mission of further steps required which would ensure efficient functioning of the judiciary in the North.
Minister Kuçi and EULEX HoM Meucci agreed that there should be an immediate solution for a fully operational Kosovo Judicial Council, mainly through the urgent appointment of the remaining members of the Council. This appointment would establish a quorum within the Council, leading to effective decision making within this institution. The importance of the appointment of the new State Prosecutor was also emphasized during the meeting.
Both EULEX HoM and Minister Kuçi agreed to further coordinate joint activities between the local justice institutions and EULEX, to strengthen the rule of law in the country.
