A medical mystery after Milosevic's death
By Elisabeth Rosenthal and Marlise Simons The New York Times

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 now that's a problem." A tribunal official said it was not possible to comment while an inquiry was under way.

Visitors have been searched and the cell was under 24/7 surveillance.
The role of a toxicologist is to find a foreign substance. The role of police is to determine how substance was administered and by whom.
When toxicologist assume the role of police, something is fishy.
Smells like UN.
CSI THE HAGUE ping.
But some confidants, including doctors who spoke to him in his last weeks of life, said Milosevic was alarmed by his poor health and feared that prison doctors, as well as Dutch special consultants, were providing inadequate treatment."
".....some scientists have been quick to insinuate that Milosevic was secretly ingesting the extra medicine to exacerbate his medical problems..."
Everything that I have read and heard informs me that his trial was going essentially nowhere in convicting him. He had a line out for Clinton and everything was looking up so he offed himself with some substance that those searched and serveilled got through to him.....oh, yeah...makes sense. He wanted to do the court a favor.
Which doctors were right, the French doctor who said he needed treatment, or the court doctors, who said he was faking it?
I was surprised to see this in the IHT, a wholly-owned subidiary of Pinch Sulzberger. But it's basically a whitewash of the court. I guess they figured it couldn't be covered up entirely, so best to get it out and over and done with. Move on, as clintbilly said.
The Hague "kangaroo" court never intended to set Milosevic free. He was their designated "fall guy" for the clinton/UN created mess in the Balkans. They needed someone to point the finger of accusation at. Milosevic was "shredding" his Hague prosecutors. If he had been an obedient "patsy" they would probably been content to let him serve 20 years. But he wasn't cooperating. They had to save face, so they offed him. Simple.
Irate at charges that he had not been taking his medicine, Milosevic agreed to new blood tests.
It was in part that examination that led prison doctors to suspect foul play, perhaps by Milosevic, Uges said. Was there some substance that would nullify the blood-pressure medicines? "We realized that the only thing that could do this was rifampicin," he said. A blood sample was found to contain the compound.
Some experts said rifampicin itself was unlikely to explain Milosevic's death, since he did not die of a stroke, a far more common problem with high blood pressure. Also, its effects on blood pressure could have been counteracted by increasing the dose of his blood-pressure medicines, said Joris Delanghe, a toxicologist at Ghent University in Belgium
They could not find evidence of his guilt and so they killed him. Simple ... and they will get away with it.
Could they have suffocated him that night. There was a big delay between when he died and when they said they discovered him dead. Weren't they checking on the prisoners every hour and weren't the lights always on?
No, that would be easy to prove. He died from Heart attack.
Probably comparrable to Kennedy having a massive haemorhage. /sarcasm off
The issue at hand is what caused heart attack in the first place. I am sure 'license to kill' services know how to do it.
One clue: MIlo was a diabetic, and it is not mentioned anywhere.
We need a forensis expert with a long memory of odd drug adverse reactions.
Also, his blood results where in in January and kept secret for 3 months, until a week before Sloba's death - why?
Someone on FR told me that it is not likely that Rifampicin was used to neutralize Meprolol (beta blocking antihypertensive drug).
If true, the question is, why was Rifampicin administered, by whom and why.
ICTY thugs provided all three answers even before inquest is over.
Methinks that Rifampicin is red herring. Chances are that something else was used to induce myocardial infarction and rifampicin to provide plausible explanation, one ICTY jumped too soon on.
