Unlawful Acting of Employees of Jagodina City Administration

The possibility of subsequent birth registration in birth registries is particularly difficult for the children born in the territory of Djakovica and Decani after 1999, who were not timely registered in birth registries. Specifically, the employees of Jagodina City Administration responsible for dislocated registry books of the stated areas and for the concerned procedures of subsequent birth registration, often bring rejecting decisions upon these requests, which are overwhelmed not only with procedural flaws and violations of the rules of procedure but also with wrong application of substantial application; evidence in the procedure is wrongly assessed, and conclusions are often arbitrary, contrary to provisions of positive legal acts, which is, among others, in opposition to the state interest of eradication of the phenomenon of legally invisible persons.

Praxis lawyers, as proxies, have initiated several procedures of subsequent birth registration for persons born in the territory of Kosovo in competence of Jagodina City Administration. In addition to the above stated flaws, also common to rejecting decisions is the fact that those are children born after 1999. We point out that in almost identical situations of subsequent birth registration of persons born in the same territory before 1999, Jagodina City Administration reached decisions on adoption of requests.
