Mitrovica/Mitrovicë Case Backlog Reduction Project

UNMIK supported the Mitrovica/Mitrovicë Basic Court to reduce its extensive case backlog by providing 10 interpreters, 2 legal associates as well as supporting the option to refer cases to mediation. 210 cases were referred for mediation. Out of 120 cases that entered the mediation process, all but 2 cases (118) were successfully resolved through mediation agreements. A total of 295 parties have been part of the cases that were processed and closed and 291 benefited from the mediation services and managed to close their case/dispute successfully. The project initially estimated that 30 mediation cases could be processed per month, but the overwhelming demand for mediation services has increased the actual number of cases to 40 per month.
