PRISTINA, 22 September 2006 - Thirty seven officers of the Kosovo Protection Corps (KPC) received certificates today after completing an OSCE-organized course on human rights.

The three-day event also focused on minority rights and gender issues.

"In light of the ongoing talks on Kosovo's final status, protecting the rights of all communities is of great importance," said Ambassador Werner Wnendt, the Head of the OSCE Mission in Kosovo.

"Being responsible for public safety, the KPC plays an important role in upholding human rights and ensuring actions - both individual and collective - comply with international human rights standards."

The OSCE Mission plays a key role in strengthening institutions in Kosovo.
