    Milosevic's death probably marks only the second or third time most people have heard anything about the so-called "Second Nuremberg" trial in the four years it has been proceeding. That's because it wasn't going too well - for the prosecution, which Milosevic embarrassed on a daily basis. Journalists were snickering at the prosecution's flimsy evidence and flaccid performance. That’s right: journalists--those people who built their careers in the 1990s as co-belligerents against the Serbs in the Balkan wars. Though Milosevic's conviction was a foregone conclusion (we wouldn't want any more rampaging Muslims than there already are in Europe), he was...

    A medical mystery after Milosevic's death By Elisabeth Rosenthal and Marlise Simons The New York Times THURSDAY, MARCH 16, 2006 ROME Frustrated and filled with skepticism about Slobodan Milosevic's litany of medical complaints, the UN war crimes tribunal at The Hague at times failed to investigate them adequately, according to several doctors who had recently examined the former Serbian leader. "His medical condition was not good, so we asked for additional tests to evaluate his cardiac situation," said Dr. Florence Leclercq, a French cardiologist who examined Milosevic for about three hours in November. "But these investigations were never performed, and...

A U.N. war crimes prosecution official in the Dutch capital, speaking on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to speak to the media, confirmed the report to The Associated Press.

    AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - Former Yugoslav leader Slobodan Milosevic, the so-called "butcher of the Balkans" being tried for war crimes after orchestrating a decade of bloodshed during his country's breakup, was found dead Saturday in his prison cell. He was 64. Milosevic, who suffered chronic heart ailments and high blood pressure, apparently died of natural causes and was found in his bed, the U.N. tribunal said, without giving an exact time of death. He had been examined following frequent complaints of fatigue or ill health that delayed his trial, but the tribunal could not immediately say when his last medical checkup...

    Che Hague - Slobodan Milosevic took délibérement a drug not prescribed "cancelling" the effect of its treatment against hypertension, indicated to Monday to AFP the Dutch toxicologist Ronald Uges after an analysis of the blood of the former Yugoslav president. "It took (a drug containing) rifampicine, a drug which cancels the effect" of the treatments against hypertension, explained Mr. Uges who carried out an analysis of the blood of the former Yugoslav president two weeks ago. "It took this drug itself and it it wanted to obtain an one-way ticket towards Moscow", he added. Slobodan Milosevic had required in...

    "No one now disputes that stopping Slobodan Milosevic was the right thing to do,” wrote the Wall Street Journal this week, several days after the deposed Serbian strongman expired in his cell in The Hague. It’s an appealing sentiment, suggesting as it does that the man who presided over the deaths of 250,000 people in Yugoslavia in the 1990s died unsung and unmourned. In reality, however, even Slobodan Milosevic had his defenders. What is more, they are the same voices--largely on the far Left but also on the isolationist Right--who have now taken up the cause of Saddam Hussein. Many...
