Abstract

The focus of this study will be criminal offences of taking a bribe and giving a bribe as one of the oldest manifested forms of corruption, with a prominent consistency even today. This essay aims to reflect the presence of these two criminal acts, reveal the fact, which one of these offences dominates, those convicted and their profiles and what is the punishment policy applied by the courts, at a time when public opinion and its perception of corruption in Kosovo is considered to be very high. This study will show or at least try to show the fact that in Kosovo, prosecuting and adjudicating those committing these types of offences (bribing and taking a bribe) is accompanied by considerable defiance, irregularities, and uncertainties that will affect the efficient fight against corruption in Kosovo. The contribution of this article is theoretical and practical, as it deals with an issue which in many dimensions is very little or not at all addressed in Kosovo, and perhaps surpassing beyond Kosovo.
