Slobodan Milosevic, 1941-2006

Not that this is an original thought, but good riddance nonetheless.

  1. Yet this means trouble.
    A suspect is ill. He requests external treatment. The request is denied. The suspect subsequently dies from complications presumably to be attributed to his illness.
    Some civil servants in The Hague should be calling their lawyers today.

  2. If you are really into conspiracy here are some more questions:

    If you know you are going to be found guilty and there is no way out but suicide, what is the optimum point in time to commit suicide to embarrass the tribunal?

    And what is the best way to cause maximum embarrassment?

    Spreading a rumour about poisoning before you commit suicide must meet some of these requirements.

    And what about the new rumour that Milosevic couldn’t have taken these neutralising “poisoning” drugs himself so must have been “helped” by his enemies? Which enemies? The Hague itself or Mladic and Karadzic who want to stay out of it?

    This will run and run
