SITF at a glance

The mandate of the EU Special Investigative Task Force (SITF) is to conduct an independent criminal investigation into the war crime and organised crime allegations contained in the Council of Europe (CoE) report of January 2011 by Senator Dick Marty, as well as other possible crimes connected to those allegations.

The SITF, formed in September 2011, consists of international staff only. It works under the authority of the EU Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (EULEX) and, in order to further reinforce the independence and confidentiality of the process, the SITF is partly based in Brussels.
 
Mr. David Schwendiman of the United States is the SITF Lead Prosecutor. Mr Schwendiman brings with him a wealth of professional and academic experience working at the highest levels in both international and domestic criminal prosecution. Prior to joining the SITF, Mr. Schwendiman served, among others, in Afghanistan and in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
 
Mr. Schwendiman succeeds Mr. Clint Williamson, who was the SITF Lead Prosecutor from October 2011 until August 2014.
