The Kosovo Specialist Chambers welcomes visitors who would like to attend public hearings from the public gallery of the courtroom. Journalists will be able to follow public hearings from a dedicated media centre. The  dates and times of public hearings will be published on the KSC website.

Currently due to measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19, available seating in the public gallery will be very limited and pre-registration is required.

Pre-registration

To pre-register to attend a scheduled public hearing, send an email to public@scp-ks.org as soon as possible, but no later than 12:00 pm on the day before a hearing is scheduled.

In the email, please provide the following details:

  • Full name

  • Date of birth

  • Citizenship and number of passport or other national ID

  • Affiliation, if relevant (e.g. general public, accredited diplomat, NGO/civil society)

  • Journalists wishing to follow from the media centre should also provide the name of the media outlet, location where you are based, as well as a scan of your press card.

You will be informed as soon as possible whether there is space available in the public gallery. If space is not available, you can also follow public hearings online. We ask for your understanding given the limitations imposed by public health measures in response to COVID-19.

Arrival and Registration

Please make sure that you arrive 60 minutes ahead of time since entry procedures may take longer than usual due to Covid-19 measures.

Persons attending public hearings are kindly requested to use the front entrance to the KSC premises located on Raamweg.

Upon arrival at the KSC, all visitors must show a valid photo identification at the security reception to be granted access to the premises.

Before entering the premises and again before entering the public gallery, all visitors will be subject to security checks, including passage through a metal detector. Any individual refusing these security checks will be denied entry.

A KSC Security Officer will ask all visitors a number of questions related to Covid-19 that are relevant for granting permission to enter the premises.
