President of Court

The President of the Federal Criminal Court (FCC) chairs both the Plenary Assembly and the Administrative Commission. The President represents the Court in its external dealings, and he may in turn be represented by the Vice-President or, if the Vice-President is unable to attend, by the most senior Court official. The President and Vice-President are elected by the United Federal Assembly on the basis of a proposal from the Plenary Assembly of the FCC. The FCC's serving judges are eligible for these positions, which have a two-year term, renewable once.

The United Federal Assembly elected Tito Ponti as President and Giuseppe Muschietti as Vice-President for the 2018-19 term.

With Vice-President Giuseppe Muschietti's recent election as Federal Supreme Court Judge, Judge Sylvia Frei has been elected as acting Vice-President from 1 January 2019 to 31 March 2019.


President: Tito Ponti

Vice-president (ad interim): Sylvia Frei
