Within the project “Improving The Transparency of Judicial Data Through Analytical Reporting”, which is part of #DigData Kosovo, an open data challenge, supported by the Kosovo Millennium Foundation (MFK) and the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), the D4D Institute held a workshop with judicial officials, media, and civil society.
In this workshop, the platform which aims to help interested parties and the general public in having easier access to court cases such as procedures and regulations for the process of using accurate data in reporting about the justice system was presented.
Rezarta Delibashzade Krasniqi, director of the D4D Institute, emphasized that with the support of the Millennium Foundation in Kosovo, in co-implementation with BIRN, Internews Kosovo has managed to build a platform with easily readable data widely for the use of data in an analytical aspect, and easier accessibility. In our country, it is quite difficult to provide data collected in one place, divided by categories, time, and gender.
Meanwhile, Kreshnik Gashi, Managing Editor at Kallxo.com, has expressed that our justice system has made many great strides in terms of transparency and at the moment, Kosovo has the most open system in the Balkans.
At the end of the workshop, it was emphasized that the media while reporting on issues of the justice system often make mistakes because of a lack of professionalism, because they do not know the field of the justice system, therefore the mistakes are professional because they do not know legal and procedural terms.
