US prosecutor to probe Kosovo organ trafficking
Pristina: The EU rule of law mission in Kosovo says a US prosecutor has been named to investigate claims that Prime Minister Hashim Thaci led a criminal network that sold organs of civilian captives during the 1998-99 Kosovo war.
The mission said in a statement on Monday that John Clint Williamson was named "lead prosecutor" in a task force set up to investigate the allegations raised in a report last year by Council of Europe investigator Dick Marty.
Marty said Thaci and other rebel commanders ran detention centres in Albania`s border with Kosovo, where civilian captives, including Serbs, were killed and their organs sold on the black market.
Thaci has denied the allegations and pledged to work with the investigators.
