The main problem that this project addresses is the widespread corruption in judiciary in Serbia. KRIK has chosen this topic since public confidence in judiciary and integrity of judges are essential for the rule of law. By exposure of judges’ assets, income, business relations and previous work (court cases, rulings etc) - we hope to bring closer the judicial system to the citizens and to raise accountability of judges.
The project aims to contribute to fight against corruption, through investigation of high-ranked judges and revealing cases of corruption.
The main outcomes are: 1) Citizens are fully and objectively informed about the most important trials in the country, judges involved and linkages in the courtroom; 2) Journalists are provided with the innovative Database on members of judiciary as a starting point for further investigations.
The main outputs will be:
1) Selected court cases to be monitored
2) Published daily news from courtrooms
3) Published investigative stories on 'high-profile cases' trials
4) Developed online Database on members of judiciary, freely available for use
5) Organised three promotional public events
6) Visibility activities undertaken.
