  • Legal Liability of the Authorities in a System of Separation of Powers

    • Authors: Mircea Criste
      Abstract: The regulation of a special legal liability for dignitaries and magistrates is in a conditional relationship with the existence of a real separation of powers, being one in consideration of the mandate. Thus, while the President of the Republic enjoys absolute and perpetual irresponsibility, similar to that recognised by the Romanian deputies and senators for the votes and political opinions expressed in the exercise of their mandate, members of the Government, the exception of those who are at the same time members of Parliament, do not enjoy irresponsibility for their actions. As for the magistrates, they are covered by such protection, in the case where they have not acted in bad faith or with serious  negligence.

  • Minor Trafficking in the Romanian Law

    • Authors: Ion Rusu, Nelu Niţă
      Abstract: In the current paper we have examined the crime of trafficking in minors, given the recent changes and additions made by the legislator in the legal content of this crime with the adoption of the G.E.O. no. 18/2016. Within the examination we have identified elements of similarity and difference between the two measures (the previous law and the law in force at the moment), and the constitutive content, forms, penalties, complementary explanations, the previous legislation and the application of more favorable criminal law in this transitory situation. The innovations consist in the conducted examination with the new changes and additions to the text originally published in the new Criminal Code, presenting comparative elements and examining the constitutive contents and the variants of applying the more favorable criminal law in transitory situations. This paper continues the examination of the offenses provided in the new Romanian Criminal Code, publishing in the near future a new university course in this field. As it is organized, the paper may be useful to law students from Romania, practitioners in this field, as well as European citizens who wish to supplement their knowledge in this field.

  • Exclusion from the Procedure for the Award of the Public Procurement
           Contracts of the Candidate/Tenderer Convicted/Investigated for Committing
           an Offence

    • Authors: Angelica Rosu
      Abstract: Law no. 98/2016 on public procurement provides in Chapter IV entitled Organization and conduct of the award procedure - Section 6 Qualification and selection criteria – the grounds for the exclusion of the candidate tenderer (paragraph 2). Some of these grounds may be found in the old regulation, but others take into consideration legal situations not covered by the old legislator as a basis for exclusion. These situations have already generated different ways of interpretation in practice, a circumstance that justifies the opportunity and usefulness of this approach. It should be noted that not all the reasons for exclusion shall be subject of this analysis; the content of Paragraph 2 of Section 6 of Law 98/2016 takes into account only the reasons relating to the commission or the alleged commission by the economic operator involved in the procedure of an offense belonging to those expressly mentioned in Art. 164 par. (1) letters a) - g).

  • General Aspects on Sexual Corruption Offense of Minors according to the
           Romanian Law

    • Authors: Bogdan Birzu
      Abstract: In this paper we have examined the crime of sexual corruption of a minor according to the new rules laid down in the new Criminal Code. To support theorists and practitioners we have insisted on examining the constitutive content of the offense and the elements of similarity and difference between the regulations of the Criminal Code of 1969 and the Criminal Code in force; the examination itself is extremely useful in terms of identifying and applying the more favorable criminal law. The innovations brought by this paper consist in a comparative examination of the provisions of the two laws, the examination of the content of constitution, and the consideration of alternatives regarding the enforcement of the more favorable criminal law. The paper can be useful for law students and the practitioners in the field.

  • The Recruitment of Minors for Sexual Purposes in the New Romanian Criminal
           Law

    • Authors: Ioana-Minodora Rusu
      Abstract: In this paper we have examined the constitutive elements of the offense of recruitment of minors for sexual purposes, having regard to the new depositions of the Romanian criminal law.

  • Re-thinking the Constitution’s Rights-based Approaches and Klare’s
           ‘Social Change Phenomenon’: A View Towards Securing Human Well-being
           and Societal Stability

    • Authors: Mashele Rapatsa
      Abstract: This article proffers a critical reflection of South Africa’s post-1994 constitutional trajectory, with specific emphasis on interpretation, application, enforcement and realisation of first, second and third generation rights as potential panaceas to challenges inhibiting socio-legal transformation. It forges an adoption of an interdisciplinary approach, relying extensively on theoretical connotations founded in Klare’s conceptualisation of Transformative Constitutionalism and social change, the traditional rights-based approaches to human development and well-being, and Amartya Sen’s and Martha Nussbaum’s Capabilities Approach. It utilises these theories as tools of analysis, to essentially evaluate their potential impact when tested against prime values grounded in the doctrine, Ubuntu, which informs Africans’ philosophy of life, often distinguishable amongst proletariats. These tools are utilised to make an assessment of material socio-economic conditions afflicting indigent communities, in an effort to provide explanations regarding identifiable gaps existing in social policy and strict legal norms and/or instruments. It is asserted that Klare’s TC and the Constitution’s rights-based approaches will remain hollow lest not augmented by strong ideological instruments that are people-centered. Thus, it is indispensable that the Constitution’s social transformation agenda, as an ongoing process, be complemented by ideologically sound approaches that adequately safeguards the well-being of humanity.

  • The Impact of the European Convention on Human Rights in the Field of
           Administrative Justice

    • Authors: Mirlinda Batalli, Islam Pepaj
      Abstract: In democratic and modern model of the administrative justice the implementation of the international standards plays a crucial role. This article seeks to examine how the judicial control is exercised in order to protect human rights in the spirit of the European Convention on Human Rights, in order to guarantee impartial and fair administrative proceedings. Among the main mechanisms by which the Council of Europe has provided a high standard of human rights protection is the European Convention on Human Rights and its oversight organs, in particular the European Court for Human Rights (ECtHR). Administrative acts issued by public administration authorities very often constitutes violations of fundamental rights and freedoms of persons, therefore the exercise of judicial control is of the utmost importance.  In this regard, this article seeks to analyze current state of play and additional progress toward protection of human rights and freedoms in the field of administrative justice in line with prerequisites of the European Convention on Human Rights and its Protocols.

  • Compensation for Immaterial (Moral) Damage Due To Violation of Personality
           Rights in Kosovo

    • Authors: Arta Dauti
      Abstract: Compensation for immaterial damage is one of the most important instruments in the positive right in Kosovo, both in terms of legal regulations as well as for the special relevance of the case law. Violation of personality rights represents one of the most important fundamental forms for compensation of immaterial (moral) damages. In this paper, we are going to address key issues related to personality rights, entailing those moral values of a person through which freedom, physical, moral and spiritual integrity are expressed, which at the same time are a constitutional and legal category, expressively provided for by Constitution, the Law on Obligational Relations. Compensation for immaterial damage is of great importance for the primary function it has for the victim, being the satisfaction to the injured party. According to Kosovo LOR, the injured party has the right to repair of the immaterial damages caused by the infringement of moral integrity by the other party, with the rendering of a judgment or correcting the error. The paper is based on literature in the theoretical and legislative aspect. The end of the paper provides important recommendations for the future legal framework in regard to compensation for immaterial damage in Kosovo, more precisely for the Civil Code of Kosovo.

  • African Response to Transboundary Momvement of Hazardous Wastes

    • Authors: Jean Chrysostome N/A Kanamugire
      Abstract: Control or management of transboundary movement of hazardous wastes is a global challenge. The indusries in the developed states generate hazardous wastes in their activities. Developed states have stringent laws and regulations for the disposal of hazardous wastes. The industries have to dispose hazardous wastes in an environmentally sound manner. it is a cost effective to dispose wastes in developed states. They target developing states mostly in Africa where they can dump their hazardous wastes. African states do not possess strict laws and policies for the protection of the environment and human lives. They also lack information to make an informed consent in the disposal of hazardous wastes. Basel convention regulates the transboundary movement of hazardous wastes on an international level. However, the African states want a total ban on the movement of hazardous wastes from developed states on their territories. Bamako convention precludes the moevements of hazardous wastes on the African continent from the other countries. The paper opines that each state should dispose its hazardous wastes in an environmentally sound manner on its territory.

  • The EU Legal Audit Framework - The Case of Kosovo

    • Authors: Ramiz Lladrovci
      Abstract: : This paper will analyze the legal framework and the development of the audit according to the acquis and the role of the general auditor in preserving public money in Kosovo. Like any other country in Europe that claims EU membership, Kosovo should continue the process of harmonizing its legislation with EU directives that require the so-called "hard" transposition of the acquis. One of the major segments of EU membership is the development of a system of internal financial control in the public sector. This paper will address the issue of Audit in the development phases, which has passed since 1800 to date, modern times. It is evident the role of the general auditor in ensuring the credibility of the financial system and in promoting the independence of the auditor, in the functional, financial and operative aspect, which always consists of a dynamic and never static process. The purpose of this paper is to review the regulations - EU directives through normative and comparative methods, in particular the provisions that foresee protection of the public interest and ensure the quality of the audit in the EU. Therefore, in this paper, the crucial audit role is concluded in the qualified examining of financial accountability in managing public finances in general.

  • The Legal Framework of Foreign Direct Investments in Kosovo

    • Authors: Kreshnik Kaçiu, Lulzim Ejupi
      Abstract: This paper deals with the issue of Kosovo’s Legal Framework in attracting the Foreign Direct Investment and the current developments in this field. This subject matter has been in the focus of Kosovo Government for a long time, thus FDI seems to be an important instrument of Kosovo’s economic growth. Legal Framework covering foreign investment differs depending in each country’s legal system. Many authors throughout the history have mentioned the impact that a good Law might have in setting up a good and a comprehensive legal framework. On the other hand, many others argue that foreign investments are mainly attracted if there is a strong political willingness and a medium legal framework which covers direct investment. We will further analyse the current Legal Framework in the field of foreign investment and discuss a number of cases, applying the comparative method. The paper will give an overview of the definition of foreign investment and its legal and economic impact. We will specifically focus on the Law on FDI, the Law on Strategic Investments and other investment related laws. We will also analyse the Law approximation process with EU Acquis, the Trade Agreements, and finally the entry into force of the SAA.

  • Some Forms of Manifestation of Official Corruption and Crimes against
           Official Duty in Kosovo 2011- 2012

    • Authors: Emine Abdyli
      Abstract: Corruption as one of the forms of the organized crime represents one of the most dangerous phenomenon which directly attacks the society. Corruption, respectively the official corruption is present in every country of the world but in the countries that have a developed democratic system, the corruption is considered to be controlled while in developing countries (such as Kosovo is) corruption is at a very concerning level.  According to the official data, the corruption in Kosovo takes place in many public institutions. Therefore, we can reach positive results in fighting and preventing this negative phenomenon only if we only if we roughen the punishment and criminal sanction policies.   In addition, the paper presents that during the period 2011 – 2012, the courts in Kosovo preceded a very limited number of the cases that are related criminal offence against corruption. In addition, the courts imposed lower measures of sanctioning compared to the number of the criminal offence cases. Only a closer cooperation between the triangle Police – Prosecution – Court and the support from the citizens would enable the sustainable basis for fighting and preventing the official corruption.  The paper contains theoretic, legislative and statistical information.
