The speech of President Atifete Jahjaga at the conference "Justice in Justice"

The citizens not only want to have but also to realize the constitutional rights and we as representatives of the institutions, but also as professionals, are contributing in building the state of law and the rule of law.

Dear representatives of the institutions of the Republic of Kosovo,

Dear participants,


The citizen of Kosovo and the rights and freedoms are the foundation of the constitutional and legal order of our state.

The citizens not only want to have but also to realize the constitutional rights and we as representatives of the institutions, but also as professionals, are contributing in building the state of law and the rule of law.

We are committed to establish the confidence in our justice system and to help create a tradition to be in service of the citizens without distinction.

The creation of a transparent judiciary, depoliticized, uncorrupted and responsive to every citizen is incitement and standard to gain the unshakable confidence in the judicial institutions. The construction and ongoing reform of the justice system is the goal of our efforts to build a state of equal opportunities, where law and its implementation rule.

Besides capacity building and building effective institutions, we are committed for the access of all citizens to justice. A good practice in this regard - which is a result of the cooperation of the institutions, civil society and professionals - is the direct provision of legal advice via mobile centers, intended to operate in more remote rural parts of Kosovo.

These centers will mediate in the resolution of disputes and other legal issues through the institutional route. It is our constitutional commitment and my personal commitment to build a comprehensive state, a state with rule of law and its impartial application.
Besides building the trust which must be developed with the strengthening of the justice system, it is also the education of the citizens to turn and the institutions and to seek justice

Our aim, is to build and make the citizens conscious about a justice process that guarantees the respect of the rights of everyone, but which reserves the right that the justice remain impartial and that nobody is above the law.

I wish you good luck in this round table because its outcome, along with other efforts being made to build the state of law, encourages thousands of pairs of various disputes and troubles throughout the country to find support in law and the institutions.

Thank you!
