Kosovo Private Offices and Private Investigators
The Special Court, also known as the Offices of Experts in Kosovo and the Office of the Special Prosecutor, and its Prosecutor’s Office were established in 2011 in The Hague, Netherlands.
This judicial body, set up to investigate and prosecute war crimes allegedly committed in Kosovo between 1998-2000, is made up of international judges and prosecutors.
Since the beginning of 2019, the Office of the Special Prosecutor has invited dozens of former KLA members to testify.
The first indictment against former KLA commander and President of Kosovo Hashim Thaci and three other defendants was approved on 26 October 2020.
