On 22 November 2017, EULEX’s Ian Bancroft and Dragana Nikolic-Solomon participated in a panel discussion in Mitrovica North on the Rule of Law and Why it Matters, organized by the EU Info Centre. The discussion addressed concerns about the Rule of Law encountered in the daily lives of citizens.
Whilst the mission naturally focusses greatly on being politically correct, it must also remember the importance of being legally correct. The EULEX mission staff includes many legal experts working within the numerous pillars of the justice system. To emphasize the importance of being accurate and precise in legal writing, a EULEX prosecution Legal Officer, Natalie Dawson, devised a programme for Kosovo Prosecution legal officers and professional associates, teaming up with two experts from the International Criminal Court, to deliver training to enhance the capacity of these key professionals to take on a greater amount of legal drafting, delegated by Prosecutors. This is intended to make life easier for both parties – legal officers get greater expertise in their daily tasks, and the Prosecutors get more time in the court room.
