The EU rule of law mission in Kosovo 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 claiming that Prime Minister Hashim Thaci led a criminal network that sold organs of civilian captives during the 1998-99 Kosovo war.

Marty said Thaci and other rebel commanders ran detention centers 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.
