The first international judge in Kosovo says that soon after arriving there he realized there would be no justice for Serbs in the Kosovo judiciary.
Cristar Karphamar was appointed as the first UN judge by the UNMIK administration led by Bernard Kouchner, and he assumed his duties in 2000.
“I was dealing with grave criminal cases in Kosovo. Quickly I realized that the Serbs did not have any chance of getting justice in the courts there. The Albanians who committed serious crimes against Serbs were being released, while many Serbs were sentenced without a fair trial,” the Swedish judge told Monday’s edition of Belgrade daily Vecernje Novosti.
