The Special Investigative Task Force (SITF) was formed in September 2011 to conduct an independent criminal investigation into the allegations contained in the Council of Europe report of January 2011 by Senator Dick Marty.

In September 2016 the SITF transitioned into the Specialist Prosecutor’s Office (SPO). It consists of international staff and is located in The Hague (the Netherlands).

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.
