COUNCIL DECISION (CFSP) 2018/856

of 8 June 2018

amending Joint Action 2008/124/CFSP on the European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (*1) (EULEX KOSOVO)

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on European Union, and in particular Article 28, Article 42(4) and Article 43(2) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy,

Whereas:

(1)

On 4 February 2008, the Council adopted Joint Action 2008/124/CFSP (1).

(2)

On 14 June 2016, the Council adopted Decision (CFSP) 2016/947 (2), which amended Joint Action 2008/124/CFSP extending the mandate of EULEX KOSOVO until 14 June 2018.

(3)

On 8 June 2017, the Council adopted Decision (CFSP) 2017/973 (3), amending Joint Action 2008/124/CFSP providing a financial reference amount until 14 June 2018.

(4)

Following the Strategic Review of the Mission, the Political and Security Committee recommended that the mandate of EULEX KOSOVO be amended and extended until 14 June 2020.

(5)

It is necessary to provide for a new financial reference amount for the implementation of the mandate of EULEX KOSOVO until 14 June 2020.

(6)

Nothing in this Decision is to be understood as prejudicing the independence and the autonomy of the judges and prosecutors.

(7)

Due to the special character of the activities of EULEX KOSOVO in support of the relocated judicial proceedings within a Member State, it is appropriate to identify the amount envisaged to cover the support to the relocated judicial proceedings within a Member State and to provide for the implementation of that part of the budget through a grant.

(8)

Joint Action 2008/124/CFSP should therefore be amended accordingly.

(9)

EULEX KOSOVO will be conducted in the context of a situation which may deteriorate and could impede the achievement of the objectives of the Union's external action as set out in Article 21 of the Treaty,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

(e)

ensure that all its activities respect international standards concerning human rights and gender mainstreaming; and

(f)

cooperate with relevant EU agencies, judicial and law enforcement authorities of Member States and third States in the execution of its mandate.’;

(3)

in Article 16(1), the last subparagraph is replaced by the following:

‘The financial reference amount intended to cover the expenditure of EULEX KOSOVO from 15 June 2018 until 14 June 2020 shall be EUR 169 805 000.

Out of the amount referred to in the fourteenth subparagraph, the amount intended to cover the expenditure of EULEX KOSOVO for the implementation of its mandate in Kosovo shall be EUR 83 555 000 and the amount intended to cover the support to the relocated judicial proceedings within a Member State shall be EUR 86 250 000.

(4)

in Article 20(2), the first sentence is replaced by the following:

‘It shall expire on 14 June 2020.’.

Article 2

This Decision shall enter into force on the date of its adoption.

Done at Luxembourg, 8 June 2018.
