An introduction to the life of Milosevic and all relevant court documents
The Milosevic Trial: International Courts and Tribunal Cases Series (2011)
Slobodan Milosevic served as the President of Serbia from 1989 to 1997 and then as President of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) from 1997 to 2000. From its foundation in 1990, Milosevic was the leader of Serbia`s Socialist Party and one of the key figures in the Yugoslav wars during the 1990s and Kosovo War in 1999. Milosevic was indicted in May 1999, during the Kosovo War, by the UN`s International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia for crimes against humanity in Kosovo (ICTY). Charges of violating the laws or customs of war, grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions in Croatia and Bosnia and genocide in Bosnia were added a year and a half later. He conceded defeat and resigned after demonstrations, following the disputed presidential election of October 2000. Within nine months of his ousting, he was arrested by security forces in Yugoslavia on charges of corruption whilst in power, and within a very short time, was extradited to stand trial in The Hague. At the ICTY, Milosevic conducted his own defence. Milosevic was charged with, amongst others, genocide, deportation, murder, extermination and torture. With just fifty hours of testimony left before the conclusion of the trial, he died in March 2006 after five years in prison. On 14 March 2006, the Trial Chamber terminated proceedings against the accused.
This book contains a short introduction to the life of Milosevic and all relevant court documents, including the complete indictments for Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo.
