Milosevic at severe risk from heart problems, UN tribunal told
The trial judges of the UN International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) today recommended further treatment for Mr. Milosevic, and have requested a report from a cardiologist before they consider further steps to ease any stress on his health.
The Tribunal had asked for an independent report on Mr. Milosevic’s health following concerns about his recent illnesses, which have delayed progress in his trial for war crimes allegedly committed in Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia.
Mr. Milosevic has been representing himself during his trial at The Hague. Tomorrow marks his last scheduled appearance before the Tribunal’s four-week summer recess. After that, his next court date is set for 26 August.
