KPA has adjudicated 5,700 property claims
After completing its 5th session in Prishtina last Thursday, the Kosovo Property Claims Commission has already adjudicated some 5,749 out of some 39,171 property claims submitted to the Kosovo Property Agency. The Agency will continue its work resolving the remaining 33,422 claims for private immovable property originating from 1998-1999 armed conflict.
The Kosovo Property Agency (KPA) is continuing its work in accordance with the Ahtisaari-plan. Last week the Kosovo Property Claims Commission (KPCC), which is a part of the Agency concluded its 5th session, and the Commission has thus far decided 5,749 of the more than 39,000 claims (14.7 percent) which have been submitted to the Agency. On its last session the KPCC decided some 2,403 property claims.
It is expected that the KPCC which was inaugurated in June 2007, will finalize the adjudication of all property claims submitted to the KPA in early 2010.
The KPA was established on 4 March 2006 through the promulgation of UNMIK Regulation 2006/10 which later was amended with UNMIK Regulation 2006/50. The Agency has, subject to appeal to the Supreme Court of Kosovo, exclusive jurisdiction to resolve claims for private immovable property (including commercial properties and agricultural) arising from 1998-1999 armed conflict in Kosovo.
