Last claims submitted with the KPA have been decided
Prishtina, January 2015
On 16 December 2014, in the Kosovo Property Agency, the last session of the Kosovo Property Claims Commission (KPCC) was held, to resolve the remaining property disputes being received, registered and adjudicated as KPA claims. As such, 194 last remaining claims were decided bringing the number of the decided claims to 42,116, whereas 633 claims were withdrawn by claimants before being referred to the Commission for adjudication, bringing the total number to 42,749 claims received by the KPA.
This process closed the chapter of adjudication of property claims submitted with the KPA, resulting from the 1998/99 armed conflict in Kosovo.
The KPCC decisions are subject to the right of appeal to the Supreme Court of Kosovo, and as such the number of claims referred back to the KPCC for reconsideration and re-adjudication is unknown.
Proper, objective and transparent resolution and implementation of conflict related property claims by entirely respecting the rule of law, has been and still remains one of the main KPA and KPCC goals.
