- The Constitutional Court
The President of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Kosovo, Mrs. Arta Rama-Hajrizi, received the former judge of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) from Albania, Mr. Ledi Bianku, who will stay for one week working visit to the Constitutional Court with the support of the Council of Europe Office in Prishtina.
The general case law of the ECtHR, the experience of former Judge Bianku in dealing with applications and judicial review proceedings, and the same decision-making of the ECtHR judges in similar applications, were just some of the topics addressed in the joint discussion.
During the conversation, the President Rama-Hajrizi notified Mr. Bianku in a more detailed way about the consolidation of the case law of the Constitutional Court of Kosovo in line with the case law of the ECtHR, the study visits to this court of the judges and advisors of the Constitutional Court of Kosovo, as well as about the excellent cooperation with the constitutional courts around the world made possible through the Venice Commission Forum.
At the conclusion of the meeting, President Rama-Hajrizi thanked Mr. Bianku for the visit and for his willingness to share with the judges and advisors of the Constitutional Court of Kosovo his experience and expertise gained from his several-year work as a judge of the European Court of Human Rights.
After thanking President Rama-Hajrizi for the hospitality, the former Judge Bianku highly appreciated the achievements of the Constitutional Court of Kosovo so far in implementing the European standards of constitutional justice.
