          • Year: 2009
          • The Judiciary 2000-2008

          • The courts and public prosecution have two important functions within the security sector. The first is to combat crime by means of prosecution and punishment of criminal offenders. The second is judicial control over executive actors in the security sector.

        •  

          The control function is especially important with regard to police work, though its significance applies to the activities of the intelligence services and the military as well. If these tasks are to be carried out effectively and the entire judicial system is to become efficient, it is essential that a minimum of basic principles, set forth in the Constitution, are fulfilled.

          The aim of this chapter is not to provide an analysis of the entire Serbian judiciary reform, but to shed more light on areas reform which are directly linked to the above mentioned functions of the judiciary in the security sector. In order to get a deeper insight, we first lookat the general characteristics of the courts and prosecutors during the 1990s. Then we review organisational and other changes that occured to the security sector after 5 October 2000. Next, we examine aspects of the judiciary and provide recommendations for the improvement of this actor’s role in the security sector.
