Their appointment did not happen, because it’s ‘forbidden by the Republic of Serbia with the intention not to allow integration in the judicial system of Kosovo,’ which has just been released from the Kosovo presidency. The failure of Serbian judges and prosecutors attending was also ‘the failure and inability of the EU as a mediator in the process of implementing the agreement on the judiciary.'” (translated from KosSev)
