Heart failure blamed but former Serb leader said doctors were killing him
The Guardian ^ | 13 March 2006 | Ian Traynor

Posted on 03/13/2006 5:00:15 PM PST by ChessExpert

The death of Slobodan Milosevic was shrouded in mystery and deepening controversy last night as Dutch pathologists examined his corpse and it emerged that he had claimed he was being slowly killed by doctors. Milosevic's body was removed from the detention centre at the war crimes tribunal in The Hague to the Netherlands forensic institute for a postmortem examination and toxicological testing.

Last night a preliminary postmortem report said that he had died of heart failure. His remains were to be released to his family today.

Yesterday the 64-year-old former Serbian and Yugoslav president's lawyer revealed a six-page letter - dated last Friday, 24 hours before his death - that Milosevic wrote to the Russian government alleging he was being deliberately administered the wrong drugs for his illnesses.

I don't blame him for dying. How would you like a trial that had already lasted four years?

How could he have died from heart failure? Doesn't it take a heart to have it fail? Good riddence Slobo.

There are plenty of poisons that can cause the heart to fail. According to some stories, for instance, he was given an anti-leprosy drug which blocked his heart medicine.

I find it absolutely impossible to believe that he could have been given an anti-leprosy drug by accident or due to some mixup by the nurses. How many lepers were incarcerated with him?

Other reports stated a heart attack. Heart failure and a heart attack are not synonymous although the ultimate result is the same.

I think he was. Guilty or not, he knew too much about what the clintons and their "devil,inc. administration" was up to.... just like Ron Brown!

Remember the video of billy-j walking and laughing after dear ol' pal's Ron's funeral and when he realised that the camera's eye was on him... he dummied up some TEARS!!

LOL, what a jerk!

Considering how much he stalled the trial himself, I don't think he really cared that it took 4 years.

No one seems to acknowledge the fact that he could have knowingly taken other medications in hopes of making himself sick so he could then plead to be taken to Russia for treatment.

Maybe he just didn't think it would actually kill him.

And these medications would have been smuggled into his jail cell by whom?

Slobo had no access to outside doctors or medicine and was under 24/7 suicide watch-surveillance.

it is the spin to answer the presence of the killing drugs in Slobo's system - Slobo had no access to outside doctors or medicine and was under 24/7 suicide watch-surveillance.

Yes. I remember seeing it on Rush Limbaugh's TV show.

McDougal died of a heart attack while in prison:

Proctor has already answered this. Where could he have gotten any medication? They had him locked up and incommunicado.

The Guardian is a left-wing NWO newspaper. They will support the UN and the Internation Criminal Court a l'outrance.

The idea was that Slobo would play the role of Hitler and the ICC would legitimate itself by putting on a show trial. But it turned out more like one of Stalin's show trials than the Nuremberg Trials, on which it was supposed to be modeled. So, rather than have him get off, it appears that they decided to poison him to ease him out of the way.

No one? Other than a few posters on FR and a handful of journalists maybe. The question becomes "How did he get them?" seeing that he was in prison and all.

Yeah, and prisoners have never been able to smuggle things in before.

That's right ~ almost forgot the Balkan Wars line in the Clinton Body Count. Big hits, too. You've Milosovic, and before him Ron Brown, and probably some others we haven't noticed.
