On 24-25 May, the President of the CEPEJ together with a group of seven CEPEJ international experts on the use of information technologies in judicial systems led a workshop in Kosovo for representatives of courts, prosecution offices, the Kosovo Judicial Council, and the Kosovo Prosecutorial Council. The purpose of this activity was to support further the implementation of the CMIS in courts and prosecution offices with proposals of recommendations based on technical European practices and in light of the CEPEJ Cyberjustice Guidelines. Several issues were addressed such as the migration of cases from the paper files to the CMIS, the production of statistics, the use of the electronic signature, the redistribution of tasks, as well as strategic and governance issues.
The workshop was organised by the KoSEJ Action, funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe, in cooperation with the EU-funded KJC/KPC Twinning Project “Strengthening Efficiency, Accountability and Transparency of the Judicial and Prosecutorial system in Kosovo” and the USAID-funded Project “Justice System Strengthening Program in Kosovo”. The KoSEJ Action has been supporting the development and implementation of the CMIS in Kosovo since the end of 2016.
