The Kosovo Specialist Chambers, established to investigate and prosecute international crimes committed during the Kosovo war, has now approved its rules of procedure. This decision allows the Court to receive any filing or indictment from the Specialist Prosecutor’s Office, and thus initiate judicial proceedings that may help clarify criminal responsibility for the commission of atrocities during conflict. ABC News informed about this recent development:

The Hague, Netherlands – June 28, 2017
A court established to prosecute crimes committed during and immediately after Kosovo’s war for independence has approved its rules of procedure and evidence, a crucial step toward prosecutors issuing indictments.
Trendafilova says that “within seven days as of today, there will be no legal impediment to receive any filing or indictment from the Specialist Prosecutor’s Office.”
The court’s prosecutors are investigating allegations made in a Council of Europe report that senior members of the Kosovo Liberation Army ran detention centers where Serbs and other civilian captives were killed and their organs sold on the black market.
Kosovo lawmakers approved the court’s creation in 2015.
