Nearly 6 months from their establishment the Special Courts and the Special Prosecution Office against Corruption and Organized Crime (SPAK) continue to be challenged by capacity building issues (human, financial and technical resources). Restrictions imposed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic in early March 2020 further delayed the finalization of some of these processes.
Regardless of these factors, the Special Courts and the Special Prosecution Office against Corruption and Organized Crime have carried out their activity in accordance with provided competencies. In the meantime, with the entry into force of the Normative Act no. 1, dated 31.1.2020 “On preventive measures in the context of strengthening the fight against terrorism, organized crime, serious crimes and consolidation of public order and security”, the material competences of the Special Prosecution Office against Corruption and Organized Crime (SPAK) are expanded.
Citizen’s expectations related to the strengthening of the fight against corruption and organized crime after the establishment of Special Courts and SPAK remain relatively high. You can read the 8 (eighth) issue of SPAK Monitor having in focus the activity of the Special Courts and SPAK during the first 6 months of the year 2020.
