On August 29, 2011, the European Union Rule of Law Mission to Kosovo announced an investigation led by US prosecutor John Clint Williamson into claims that Kosovo Prime Minister Hashim Thaci participated in a human organ and drug trafficking scheme during the 1998-1999 Kosovo War. Thaci denied all allegations, as did the government of Kosovo. The claims originated from a former prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY).
