Shala: Judgments are sometimes generalized, abstract and paraphrased

Approaching Shala

Afrim Shala, judge of the Supreme Court, in the show "Tempus" on KTV, said that the judgments of the courts in lower instances are generalized, abstract and paraphrased.
"We have simply assessed that the judgments of the courts of lower instances are generalized, sometimes they are abstract and in some cases they are simply legal paraphrases and on that basis we have been uncompromising", Shala emphasized.

He said that the Supreme Court was uncompromising in terms of ending the detentions, as there was no reason for imposing this measure.
Further, he clarified that based on the data they have, it results that a large number of citizens have been compensated by the Judicial Council of Kosovo due to the fact that they were detained without a legal basis.

Also, he emphasized that the judges are determining the measure of detention without taking into consideration the principle of presumption of innocence, and as a result of this, the compensation of large sums of damage is being reflected, for citizens who remain in detention without a legal basis .

"Based on the data we have, it turns out that a large number of our citizens have received compensation from the Kosovo Judicial Council, precisely because of the fact that they were detained without a legal basis, this is due to the fact that one of the principles the basis that is guaranteed by the Constitution and the European Convention is the principle of presumption of innocence, our judges often assign detention without considering such a principle, which later reflects in the compensation of large amounts of damage to such citizens" , Shala added.
