In his outgoing address as Kosovo Specialist Prosecutor, David Schwendiman said that gathering evidence and locating witnesses to indict former members of the Kosovo Liberation Army had been tough.

In his parting speech, the chief prosecutor at the Hague-based Kosovo Specialist Chambers, David Schwendiman, said on Thursday that his office had collected a mass of evidence – but repeated that the court was not set up to “change history” or put one ethnicity on trial.

During his time in the job, his office collected around 700,000 pages of documents, some 6,000 videos, transcripts and other items during investigations of possible war crimes, Schwendiman said.
