Today, the Kosovo Specialist Chambers launches its new website. While the web address remains the same (www.scp-ks.org), the new website features a fresh structure and content, with accessible and intuitive links to the most important information, including links to the court records and the ability to stream future hearings.
Judge Ekaterina Trendafilova, President of the Specialist Chambers, commended the launch as another milestone reached by the Specialist Chambers since it began its operations. She stated, “Today we are getting a bit closer to everyone who wants to follow our activities and is interested in our mandate. The new website is very user-friendly and is an important tool to ensure the publicity of our future judicial proceedings, as a fundamental fair trial guarantee”.
An important feature of the new website is the ability to stream audio-visual content during court sessions and/or other events either as delayed or live feed in all three official languages (Albanian, Serbian, and English). The aim is to make the proceedings before the KSC accessible from any place in the world with an internet connection.
The new website also includes a public court records database (PCR) with KSC public records in the three official languages of the institution. The database is user-friendly and easy to navigate through simple and advanced search functions. Its innovative features include the possibility to search different types of documents by court level and the automatic display of related filings.
Additional elements of the new website are:
The Home page has a fresher look with flexible tiles leading directly to different sections of the website.
The Documents are easier to find, being divided into different categories such as Legal Documents, Videos of Judicial activities and others.
The News area can now filter Press Releases, Web News items or other type of news to allow better research.
Other features will be added over time, including the case information pages once proceedings commence, and links to Social Media platforms.
President Trendafilova expressed her gratitude to all those staff members who have worked with dedication to create the new website.
Since its launch in September 2016, the KSC website has attracted over 85,000 individual visitors and more than 700,000 page views.
