The Guarantees of the Human Rights of the Defendant in the Law System in Kosovo

Armend Podvorica, Adelina Rakaj


The paper "The guarantees of the human rights of the defendant in the law system in Kosovo" aims to treat the access of the Republic of Kosovo in the delivery of constitutional guarantees and legal guarantees to protect the defendant in the criminal procedure. Within these guarantees, special emphasis is placed on the judicious acts in force that provide these guarantees in the Republic of Kosovo. A special analysis with regard to this paper is dedicated to the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (ECHR), the practice of European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), the Constitution of the Republic of Kosovo and the Criminal Procedure Code of Kosovo (CPCK). The analysis of those acts clarifies that the guarantees of the Legal System in Kosovo coincide with the rights of the defendant. 

Another dimension that finds space within the paper is the practical implementation of the guarantees provided by the aforementioned acts in terms of the rights of the defendant. The role of the Constitutional Court in the Republic of Kosovo in the past and now has been mainly analyzed in the formation of the constitutional and international guarantees, applicable in Kosovo concerning the rights of the defendant in the criminal procedure.
