'Leprosy drug in Milosevic's blood'
Traces of a drug used to treat leprosy and tuberculosis were found in a blood sample taken in recent months from former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic, a news report has said.
The report came hours after Milosevic's legal adviser revealed a letter the late Serb leader wrote on Friday, one day before his body was discovered in prison, alleging that he was being poisoned.
In the report by state broadcaster NOS, a lawyer and commentator for the channel, Heikelina Verrijn Stuart, said she had confirmation that doctors first noticed the medicine in his blood in January.
Stuart said the drugs interfered with other medicine Milosevic was taking for high blood pressure and vascular disease.
"They were counterproductive," said Stuart, a lawyer who has closely followed the proceedings. "What we do know is that this is the cause of death and you can't say that it was really a case of natural death."
Stuart said the tribunal only learned of the presence of the drug in his blood last week, on March 7.
"It's naturally a riddle," she said.
Dutch doctors conducted a post mortem examination on Milosevic's remains on Sunday, but the results were not expected to be released until Monday.
A tribunal spokeswoman said she could not comment on the news report. "We don't have any information. We simply have to wait for the results" of the autopsy report, said Alexandra Milenov.
Doctors found traces of the drug when they were searching for an answer to why Milosevic's medication for high blood pressure was not working, the report said.

according to those who hold that view the Russians used special forces using super duper KGB technology to get them into Syria under our AWACs noses.
The UN murdered him. The defense attorney's that the UN assigned were not pals of Slobo and were not liable to sneak in drugs for him to help him suicide.
What took them so long?
Send in the clowns ... don't bother, they're here.
I have no argument about his death. I merely state that I would have stolen the hangman's moment if I were in this position and figure he somehow did.
The guard of the UN is no match for a dedicated assassin or assistant.
When your enemy is in the process of killing himself, the last thing you want to do is interrupt him.
Slobo died on the eve of Zoran Djindjic's death. I don't believe in coincidences - on such a day any mourning for Slobo would be counteracted by mourning for Djindjic thus lessening the impact of Slobo's death.
Of course you do and so do I.
What's the difference between insisting that a death was accidental, and insisting the death was caused by a specific party, without knowing all the facts?
The medicine in question would cancel out the heart medicine given. No accident. Done with foresight and I think malice.
And a week after his star defense witness commits "suicide?" Something stinks here. Something stinks to high heaven.
Of course it does.
The problem is you don't see a problem. People with that attitude tend to make great camp capos.
Occam's Razor decides the blame for you.
In its simplest form, Occam's razor states that explanations should never multiply causes without necessity. When two explanations are offered for a phenomenon, the simplest full explanation is preferable. One should not increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything.
They say one should only say good of the dead. This SOB is dead. Good
Well, the drugs obviously hadn't "done their magic" so they wanted to give it a little more time. If they had only waited another week or so, no one would ever know.
Think about it. Who profits? Other Serbs, muslims, the US, Russia?
The man had many enemies. I sound like a bad TV detective show, but that's the fact.
One of his enemies saw a profit in shutting him up.
