A barrister at Old Square Chambers has been appointed to assist in the rebuilding of Kosovo's legal system.
As a legal officer in the department of justice of the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (Unmik), Nick Booth will have a wide remit.

Booth said: "If a judge orders the eviction of a Serb family for not having paid rent, a legal officer may intervene to stop this taking place. Complaints are bound to arise because judges have been biased." He said that it is an unusual mission, as only East Timor is comparable in terms of the political vacuum that was created as a result of conflict.
