How powerful are eulex judges and prosecutors in Kosovo. (RI §409668)  

- Dren Doli y Fisnik Korenica

The international process on Kosovo status settlement ended-up with the Ahtisaari Plan, which in fact prescribed the settlement arrangements. The very basic principle of Ahtisaari Plan was the supervision of the Kosovo independence. As a result, the main constrain upon the Kosovo independence, determined by the Ahtisaari Plan, was the authority of EULEX judges and prosecutors in Kosovo. Hence, the EULEX judges and prosecutors in Kosovo were authorized to supervise the Kosovo judiciary, and to stand as the final instance of intervention when the rule of law context is in question. To that end, the Law on EULEX Judges and Prosecutors in Kosovo determines the concrete jurisdiction and arrangements for the EULEX judges and prosecutors. This paper therefore shall make a legal review upon the latter law, by intending to illustrate its weaknesses and strengths. In that line, the paper shall centrally argue that the supervision powers that EULEX judges and prosecutors are worn with, interfere in the independence of the Kosovo internal judges. Moreover, the paper argues that the President of EULEX Judges and the Chief-EULEX Prosecutor have arbitrary powers, which clash with the EULEX judges and prosecutors’ independence also.
