The Host State Agreement to come into force on 1 January 2017

30 Nov 2016

The Kosovo Specialist Chambers welcome the Kingdom of Netherland’s ratification of the Host State Agreement (HSA) between the Netherlands and Kosovo. This is the agreement which provides legal basis for the Kosovo Specialist Chambers to conduct proceedings in the Netherlands and is to enter into force on 1 January 2017. Until its entry into force, the Specialist Chambers continue to function under the provisions of the Interim Host State Agreement, which allows for implementation of the mandate of the Registry and preparatory work in relation to judicial proceedings.
