Kosovo Organ Trafficking Inquiry Chief Vows to Investigate All Evidence

September 19, 2016

(The Guardian) – The chief prosecutor appointed to a specialist court in The Hague investigating the alleged trafficking of human organs during the Kosovo war has said he will follow any evidence that is uncovered. David Schwendiman, a former US federal prosecutor who has worked in Bosnia and Afghanistan, acknowledged the “political sensitivity” of the EU-backed inquiry, the remit of which covers alleged atrocities between 1998 and the end of 2000, “when they amount to a war crime or crime against humanity”.
