IIJ joins CEELI Institute for workshop supporting judges and prosecutors
On 20-22 March, the IIJ joined the CEELI Institute in Prague for a workshop supporting judges and prosecutors from the Western Balkans in their adjudication of terrorism cases. Participants from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia, joined judges and experts from Germany, Slovenia and the US, in sharing national experiences and working through case studies to promote implementation of the GCTF’s The Hague Memorandum on Good Practices for the Judiciary in Adjudicating Terrorism Offenses. The workshop was part of a series of three workshops developed jointly by the IIJ and the CEELI Institute, with support from the US Department of State’s Counterterrorism Bureau. The IIJ hosted the initial workshop for judges from the MENA region in November 2016, and will host a further workshop in Malta in Fall 2017.
